The former Gran Hotel built in 1903 was designed by Catalan architect Lluis Domenech i Muntaner. It began the period known in Palma as Modernista and houses now huge paintings from the same era. There is also a cafeteria with a treet terrace and a bookstore. Caixa is a Spanish bank which maintans similar cultural premises also in other cities like Madrid.

One of the important museums in Palma with a permanent exhibition of Mallorcan artists and temporary exhibitions. The Disney exhibition we visited was first class and at only 4 euro, a steal.

This museum is in the old Gran Hotel and the modernista design is fascinating. We viewed the Disney exhibit which was interesting. for those who do not speak Spanish note that there is information available in English in a free brochure provided by the museum though the works of art are only labeled in spanish and Catalan.

A very decent gallery however at the time of my vivit it was an exhibition of Disney characcters and how the old cartoons were made. Absolutely fascinating and great to see the origianl drawings. Quite in depth - not my thing but was very interesting. Certainly worth a visit without any doubt.

When in Mallorca we found out that the famous Catalonia Architect Antoni Gaudí was involved in a design of the chapel in the Cathedral of Mallorca.

We were also told, that Palma has a few buildings strongly influenced by Gaudi’s work and therefore reminiscent to his style. So, during our stroll through Palma’s old town we were on a lookout for the modernistic facades.

CaixaForum building (also called Fundacio la Caixa) is located between Placa Major and Passeig del Born, on Placa de Wylers 3. It is a great example of Gaudi style.

Other "Gaudi's" buildings in nearby location:
Can Forteza Rey on Carrer de Colom going (N) toward Placa Major. Its address is from Placa del Marques del Palmer 1.

Just beyond CaixaForum, going (W) toward Passeig del Born, there is Placa del Mercat. On its east side there are two modernist buildings separated by a narrow street Casta de Can Santacilia. These are Agrupacio (Placa del Mercat 13), and Purification Gar (Placa del Mercat 14). The buildings are often referred as Edifici Casasayas.

If you enjoy seeing beautiful buildings, this is one of the few to see in Palma city. Also downstairs they have a cafe to sit for a drink but not much for children on the menu.

Another lovely building to include on a walking tour of Palma. There are plenty of special buildings to head for and this is certainly one of those, but make sure to keep looking and enjoy the less obvious, less famous ones that also add character to the city.
