The Glory Restored

roseton

The beautiful stained glass window in Palma’s cathedral suffered a bit of a mishap just over a year ago when some stormy weather in February of 2008 caused severe damage to a number of the window’s panes and also, to part of the stone masonry holding the panes in place. The large rose window is renowned for its glory and beauty. No wonder, as it was designed in 1903 by none other than Antoni Gaudí of Sagrada Familia fame in Barcelona.

Luckily, and just in time for last Sunday’s Corpus Cristi celebrations, the window has now been restored to its original glory. Of the 1,115 panes of glass, 535 have been replaced. All glass panes have been re-set in lead.

You may want to pay another visit to La Seu any time soon, as Palma’s cathedral is called by the locals. Remember that access to the cathedral outside of times of church service is through the Casa de Almoina which houses the Museo de la Catedral. Entrance admission is 4 €, unless you are a resident in Mallorca and can prove your status. In this case, entrance admission is granted for free.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 16th, 2009. The time was 13:49:22.
