Palma.—By 8.00 am on Sunday morning, Palma Cathedral was filled with expectant people. But most had not turned up early for Mass, they were here to see the natural phenomenon called the Solstice of the Seu.
The phenomenon happens twice a year, on 2 February, known as Candlemas, and on 11 November, the Feast of Saint Martin.
The early morning sun always casts colourful light through the Cathedral’s huge west window, lighting up the Nave.
