Cathedral Ciudadela - Review

The Cathedral of Minorca is a church situated in Ciudadela, Minorca. It was built on the orders of King Alfonso III, the conqueror of the island. The cathedral was built on the premises of an old mosque and the construction for the same started in the year 1300. The original cathedral was built in Catalan Gothic style. Over a period of time and a few wars later, the main facade of the cathedral was rebuilt in the year 1813 in neoclassical style- a stark contrast to the original gothic style. A stunning feature within the cathedral is the marble altar with its stain glass and its marble throne.

  • Large cathedral standing prominently in the main square inside the old town. Difficult to get the true scale of it from the square but it does stand high above the surrounding buildings and can be better appreciated viewed from the other side of the harbour bridge and slightly up the road beyond, looking back. Inside is impressive but understated. Not lavish or gaudy like some churches. Has a well proportioned feel inside.

  • Very pretty. Worth a visit.

  • Peaceful time to reflect on ones life. Be great full for what u have.

  • The Cathedral Basilica of Ciutadella de Menorca is a Roman Catholic church in Ciutadella de Menorca, in the island of Menorca, in Balearic Islands, Spain. It was constructed on the orders of King Alfonso III of Aragon "the Liberal", the conqueror of the island, in 1287 on the site of an old mosque.The great altar is a marble monolith covered by a 15-metre-high canopy. At the back of the apse, under an image of the Virgin in the mystery of the presentation of Jesus in the temple, is found the episcopal throne, made with Roman marble blessed by Pope Pius XII to signify the links of faith and devotion of this church of Menorca to St. Peter's Basilica. In 1953 Pope Pius XII gave the cathedral the title of minor basilica.Construction started in 1300 and was finished in 1362, creating a building of the Catalan Gothic style, and is notable for the width of the nave, flanked by six chapels to each side. The five-sided apse is oriented to the east. After the desecration and devastation of the cathedral by the Ottoman Empire Turks under Admiral of the Ottoman Fleet Pialí Bajá in 1558 and the collapse of the vaults of the apse in 1626, the damage was quickly repaired in the original style. In 1795, with the restoration of the old bishopric of Menorca (which had existed at start of the 5th century) the parish church of Ciutadella came to be the cathedral of the new diocese. Under Bishop Juano, the main façade was rebuilt in 1813 in a neoclassical style, contrasting with the Gothic style of the building, while the restored side door called the Porta de la Llum ("Portal of the Light") keeps some of its medieval ornamentation. In the interior, the baroque chapel of the Angelusdates from the start of the 17th century with exquisitely-carved columns. Reference from Wikipedia.
