    -In Arts and cartography:
    In these ensembles humanistic and narrative values are expressed for the religious contents that were imposed, in successive artistic stages, on the European plastic arts of the period. Mallorca’s strategic position in the Mediterranean context facilitated the access of the local workshops to knowledge that was transmitted fundamentally by the circulation of artists and pieces.

    1. Choose one building (its main features) and an aspect you would like to comment (a part of the building, a story, an annecdote).
    I chose the Almudaina palace. The main parts are the tower of the angel, the chapel of Santa Ana and the Gothic Tinell room. I liked this palace for his long story. It was built in 903 for the Arabs and in 1929 the Cristian occupied Almudaina.
    I remember when we were in the palace and the assistant explained the story. It was amazing and the part of Almudaina that I liked more are the baths, because they were built under the building.

    2. Situate the building in the interactive map.
    It is situed to Santa Eulàlia – square of Cort.

    3. Investigate route 2, which proposes 5 different itineraries to explore five districts of the city.
    Itinerary 1: Church of Santa Creu, Consolat del Mar and the Llotja.
    Itinerary 2: Church of Santa Margalida.
    Itinerary 3: Church of the Hospital or “De la sang” and church of Sant Jaume.
    Itinerary 4: Almudaina’s Palace and the Cathedral.
    Itinerary 5: Church of Santa Eulàlia, Church and closer of Sant Francesc and El Temple.

    4. Use the histogram to compare the date when it was built with another building in Palma and another one from Spain or Europe.
    The Almudaina is older than the Cathedral. (903>1230)
    The Amudaina is older than the Santa Creu. ( X century > XIV century).

    5. Investigate route 2, which proposes 5 different itineraries to explore five districts of the city. Chose one itinerary and read about it. Find the key words you need to be able to explain it en English with the help of the map.
    Itineraries 1
    You must go to the small square between the cathedral and the Almudaina. Later you must go on and turn right continuing the street to the house of the harmony. Then you must go on and later turn right to watch the street of San Pere and San Bernard. If you continue you can visit the diocesan museum and the episcopal palace. After that you continue the street of Morei and at left the street of Almudaina. Then if you continue at left you can across the royal palace street and the street of general study , but the fate of the rout is at right to Almodaina`s street. That arrive to the Cort`s square.

    6. Surprise your classmates with an interesting finding. Browse the site, choose your favourite aspect and post it to the blog.
    The word ‘Almudaina’ stems from the Arabic language, and is a diminutive of the word madina, which means town. The Almudaina is the town’s most important defensive nucleus, and its origins go back to Roman times, although there are no longer any architectural remains from this period.
    Little remains of the original building, because after the conquest in 1229 it became the seat of the new established power, and the kings of Mallorca – in particular Jaume II – made it their residence.
    On 12th-century building the central enclosure with the four corner towers and the l’Àngel tower with its Gothic weathervane, the work of Camprodón that King Sancho had crown the top, remains practically intact. The Gothic balustrades and series of pointed arches in the sea-facing façade and the eastern one would have been the result of the alterations imposed by the kings of Mallorca when adapting the palace to meet their requirements.

    1) This is the most important monument on the Balearic Islands. The Cathedral of Palma, popularly known as ‘La Seu’, is also the seat of the dioceses of Mallorca. Its style is primarily Gothic, but the different additions through the centuries reveal the entire history of Mallorcan art, including a recent intervention by Miquel Barceló in the Capilla del Santísimo (Chapel of the Most Holy). The part of the Cathedral that I like most is the “Vidriera” because is very beautiful.

    2) is situated on the “Paseo Marítimo”

    3)

    4) the cathedral was built on the 1220 and Almudaina palace was built on the 1140. In the european building The Reims Cathedral of France was built on 1211.
