We have twice visited the Fundacio La Caixa and on both occasions the exhibitions were exceptional (last year Georges Méliès and this year Santiago Rusiñol / El Greco). The building itself is, as befits its past and modernista architect (Lluís Domènech i Montaner), beautiful and in good order. As a UK customer of Barclays Bank, there was no charge for... More

Permanent exhibition of internationally renowned artists. Interesting temporary exhibitions, located in the most emblematic Art Nouveau building of Palma.

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.
