On the edge of Palma it is easy to get to by the number 46 bus to just outside (but it does take a roundabout route) or numbers 3 or 20 buses which are more direct but a 10 minute walk up a steep hill. It was interesting to see where Miro spent the majority of his creative life (what... More

Lots of Miro but especially good to see his studios almost as if he had just left a few minutes before.

I absolutely love Miro so was very excited to be able to spend some time somewhere that he chose to live. I particularly liked seeing his drawings on the walls of his house. The indoor collection is very nice, although unfortunately there were about 60 school children running riot in there during my visit so I didn't actually get to... More

We took a number 3 bus to the bottom of the road. Up the hill is quite a steep climb if you are elderly, but definitely worth the climb. The paintings are quite Picasso like, with a definite Gaudi influence in his sculptures - I am a fan of Guadi. Worth visiting the cinema which provides more information about Joan... More

Easy to get to by bus, this place is a must-see in Palma. Fascinating collection of Joan Miro's art, both inside and in the garden. The view over Palma from the garden is beautiful! The cafeteria makes a very nice cup of coffee and delicious pastries!

A varied mixture of sculpture, paintings and sketches across a series of galleries and studios perched high on a hill overlooking Cala Nova. There is a vibrancy of colour and accessibility to Joan Miro's work inspiring the visitor to put brush to paper. The facilities are excellent, staff friendly with only the garden having been swallowed up the galleries slightly... More

I had previously visited the Miro Foundation in Barcelona, which was disappointing. This was very much better, having a larger and more varied display of the author's work. Included is the studio in which Miro worked in later life, still containing a number of easels with work in progress. Very interesting. Of course, you have got to like Miro's work.

A 2nd visit here after several years. One of the most famous 20th Century artists. We decided to take the bus, missed the stop, and had to go back . At the top of a hill his last residence, and studio, where many of his paintings are kept. A must do trip if you love art and highly recommended.

While staying at the Mirablau Hotel in Cal Major, I was advised to walk up the hill to see the Foundation. A stunning modern building, it housed paintings and sculptures of Joan Miro as well as an insight into his life. Note that entrance is free on Saturdays!
