On the outskirts of Algaida you will find the Gordiola glassworks, an imposing castle like building housing the glassblowers and museum/shop. The museum is free and houses a interesting collection of glass through the ages and from around the world. Watching the skill of the glass blower is also interesting and informative. If your passing I would recommend a viewing,... More

I strongly reccomend a visit. The process of creating glass jars is amazing! The factor is an excellent visit to appreciate handicrafts.

On a rainy day, we found ourselves here and definitely no regrets. Glass blowing demos can be overrated but as you try and work out what they are making, while simultaneously wondering if the blowers were actually enjoying their work, you find yourself eager to get into that gift shop and land yourself a fragile piece. Unfortunately, I was only... More

Very authentic place. Beautiful courtyard with a variety of sculptures. I do not know how to get there by public transport because we rode around the island by car, but in the same place were self guided tours, so it's not a problem, I think. The mansion sold all sorts of cool stuff from handmade glass at bargain prices. These... More

It's nice to remember how our parents and grandparents used to buy dishware before Ikea. Don't just visit the workshop but take a look at the shop. It's expensive but some things are beautiful to see.

In my opinion, this place is worth visiting when you are going to or back from e.g. Palma de Mallorca. You will not spend here much time (about 30 minutes) but you can see in this place some interesting glass items. We visited this place in the evening, when unfortunately, workers were already tired and didn't really want to show... More

Unless we happened to visit on a bad day I can see no good reason to visit. The museum is dusty and with no explanation of what is in the cabinets. The shop is overpriced with no particularly high quality items.

We normally drive by this little gem on our way to Sa Coma. We made a visit to amuse ourselves during a rainy holiday week and we're delighted with our find. We were able to roam the the museum and display areas as well as watching the glass blowing, the building itself is worth a look. Venture upstairs to the... More

It was interesting to see the glass blowing but a bit touristy and the glass in the shop was overpriced
