    6, 7 and 8 June 2002 Palma de Mallorca

    Monographic subject: Gaudí in Mallorca

    For fourteen years, Gaudí worked and undertook a variety of studies at Palma cathedral and elsewhere on the island. It was bishop Pere-Joan Campins who proposed Gaudí for the restoration and decoration of Mallorca's cathedral. Later on he worked at the Lluc Shrine for the 25th anniversary celebration of the image of the Black Virgin.
    These topics, and any others that might emerge, will be discussed amongst students of Gaudí's works, within the framework of the Ninth International Conference on Gaudinian Studies to be held in Palma.
