The Episcopal Palace, facing the sea behind the Cathedral, holds the Diocese Museum of Mallorca. The museum, inaugurated in 1916 and recently reopened after six years' refurbishment, exhibits some 200 religious works of art that offer a historical trip round Christianity in Mallorca.

The contents of the Museum proceeds from convents, monasteries, churches... plus donations from private collections. Amongst the works on show worth mentioning are the Saint George Reredos by Pere Niçard (XV century) and several works by Antoni Guadi designed to decorate the Cathedral and the Episcopal Palace (XX century).

The premises includes the Saint Paul Gothic Oratory that dates from the beginning of the XV century which was incorporated afterwards to the Episcopal Palace building.

Finally we mention that a visit to the museum offers exceptional views over the port and bay of Palma.

Visiting times are from Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and costs 3 euros.
