One of the artistic building in the busy shopping area of Palma. Close to historic centre and close to plaça del mercat. Comparable to Gaudi art of Barcelona.

Cafe Gran Hotel, a stunning Art Deco building owned by bank Caixa. To the hotel there is also an outdoor restaurant with great food, maybe slightly slow service. The poor waiter had to run long distances to the hotel kitchen to get food. Great to sit on the outdoor restaurant and enjoy good food and this beautiful building.

The CaixaForum Palma is located in a historic building called the Gran Hotel. It was designed by the famous Catalan architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner and completed in 1903. This is one of the best examples of modernist architecture on the island. The façade is wonderfully decorated with ceramics and sculptures. The windows are exceptionally beautiful.

Easy to find just at bottom of Ramblas. Near the Grand Hotel. The architecture is in wonderful condition and gives an incling of the splendid nature of the period when it was built. Just a a hundred metres south to the left is a lovely square which has two buildings which are in the Guiadi style and are magnificent. This... More

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.
