Photo Contest: Most Original Photograph of the November 2019 Light Event

Each year on 11th November, the feast day of Saint Martin, between 8:30 and 9 in the morning, an extraordinary light show can be seen at La Seu Cathedral in Palma. Dubbed the Spectacle of the Eight, spectators are treated to a magical sight where the light of the rising sun passes through the large 11.85 metre “wheel” or “rose” window of Trinity Chapel and is projected onto the opposite wall.

A moment later, just for a few seconds, the light is reflected under the church’s other rose window forming a figure eight-shaped double rosette. This combined with the dazzling sight of the light hitting the more than 1100 individual pieces of stained glass is a spectacle indeed.

Enter to win a delicious dinner for two at Rotana Restaurant in Palma. For more information, read our article by clicking here.
