“Amazing building”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

This is an amazing building in its own right. The Art Nouveau hall is a show stopper. It's not very large and houses different art projects and shows. I think most are free so at any time this is well worth a visit.

“Fabulous building”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

The building (outside) is a modernista gem. The art exhibitions change but there is a small permanent exhibition. If you are interested in art nouveau in Palma don't miss the video in the reception area (English version really worth it for the historic detail).

“Must see”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I didn't have time to go inside, but it is a lovely piece of architecture that one must simply see when in Palma. I'd say it is the most beautiful building in the city, it makes the cathedral look plain.

“A gem in Palma”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This art nouveau hotel was slated for demolition when the La Caixa Bank bought it and changed it to a cultural center....great art on display for FREE! exhibitions change regularly on ground floor gallery, permanent collections upstairs...multi-lingual staff on hand; check with them for their program of films, concerts, talks, etc. Have seen amazing things in this building.
