Interventions on the Cathedral (1903-1914)

Before Gaudí's intervention, the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca was different. The disposition of the choir and the Baroque and Gothic altarpieces and the opacity of different Gothic windows gave it an aspect that Pere Campins, the local bishop, wanted to change and improve.
Amongst the several reforms carried out by the architect, there is the elaboration of the windows using the procedure of the combination of three glass plaques (with the primary colours that, one behind the other and illuminated by the sun, give out the secondary colours), as well as the installation of a canopy, the decor of the walls and the making of the furniture.
