KING Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia will attended the blessing and opening of the Santísimo chapel in the Cathedral, after the reforms carried out by artist Miquel Barceló. The date is set for February 2.

A spokesman for the Art in the Cathedral Foundation said that the work was “a contemporary artistic intervention in one of the most representative cathedrals of the Mediterranean Gothic heritage.” The main part of the cathedral was built in the 14th century and it has been subject to successive reforms since then.
Barceló signed a contract with the Foundation (made up of the Bishop's office, the Balearic government, Fundatur, the Balearic University, the Council of Majorca, Palma city council and the Cathedral chapter) in August 2002.

The chapel will be open to the public from February.
Barceló has covered the walls of the Gothic chapel, with a 300 square metre ceramic, depicting the miracle of the loaves and fishes.
Five 12-metre high stained glass windows, illuminated in shades of grey help suggest the symbolism of sea light.
