This was the first Modernisme style building that we saw on the day that we visited Palma. It happened to be the one designed by the great Catalan architect, Lluís Domènech i Montaner. You'll see a lot of his work in Barcelona. He's the one who designed the Hospital de Sant Pau and the Palau de la Música Catalana (totally... More

The beauty from the outside of this building does not match the exhibition quality for me. Found the photo exhibition small, sparse and uninteresting. There is a cafe which was busy with locals and tourists so I guess it must have been good, but we didn't try it. Got some nice pics from outside at least and it was easy... More

A definite photo opportunity, this building, in the centre of Palma, is a great example of early 20th century architecture. It also has a nice café and bookshop. But what made it exceptional was the exhibition 'Genesis' by the Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado. I don't know when it finishes but if you are in Palma, check it out. 4 euro... More

We spent a nice time strolling around the exhibitions, mostly photography and paintings. It's a small location so don't expect huge halls with lots of art pieces! Just a little and unpretentious art gallery. We liked it.

This city-centre cafeteria is in a memorable modernist converted city-centre bank building, and with a gallery and bookshop in the same complex. Go there, have a snack and a drink, and watch the world go by - well worth it, and with charming staff to justify the pricing!

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. Today the building is... More

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.
