Discover the spectacular rosette of la Seu de Palma

It is definitely worth it to set the alarm on 2nd February to eye witness a unique illumination show known as "the show of eight". This magical occurance only happens twice a year in the Seu ofPalma and on some symbolic dates; the 2nd day of the 2nd month and the 11th day 1of the 11th month. On these days from 8:00 in the morning, everyone who is in the cathedralcan see how the rising sun crosses the rosette of the main facade so thatduring a short period of time one is reflected on the other, forming a doublerosette, one of glass and another of light, giving rise to the shape of a 8. Atruly magical spectacle!
