We live in a society in which there are still great inequalities and many people do not have basic resources. "la Caixa" Foundation therefore promotes diverse initiatives in different areas to foster the social inclusion of the most disadvantaged sectors so that the people in them may have a better life.

You're on your way down on Ramblas, go to the left footwalk and take a look at your right, bang! you see this! Beautiful building and it kind of makes you stop and stare at it. (Although it's not, We couldn't help to have a reminisce of memory of gaudi's work in barcelona...)

This is an amazing building in its own right. The Art Nouveau hall is a show stopper. It's not very large and houses different art projects and shows. I think most are free so at any time this is well worth a visit.

The building (outside) is a modernista gem. The art exhibitions change but there is a small permanent exhibition. If you are interested in art nouveau in Palma don't miss the video in the reception area (English version really worth it for the historic detail).

I didn't have time to go inside, but it is a lovely piece of architecture that one must simply see when in Palma. I'd say it is the most beautiful building in the city, it makes the cathedral look plain.

This art nouveau hotel was slated for demolition when the La Caixa Bank bought it and changed it to a cultural center....great art on display for FREE! exhibitions change regularly on ground floor gallery, permanent collections upstairs...multi-lingual staff on hand; check with them for their program of films, concerts, talks, etc. Have seen amazing things in this building.

The Fundacio la Caixa took over the modernist Gran Hotel in 1993. It was designed by Catalan architect Luis Domene Muntaner and completed in 1903. The Caja de Pensiones of Barcelona bank group turned it into their foundation's HQ and a venue for their arts and cultural programmes. The 5 floor exterior of the building has facades intricately decorated with... More
