This bvery modern building links the old fortress wall to the upper parts if the city but is divorced from it by the mere fact that it does not flow back into the main streets; you have to go back down the same streets you came from - Passeig de Born. The museum is bitty and has few really fine pieces and was a trifle disappointing and stark. Some good sculpture at the head of the fortress and some fine views across the top cityscape.

This small museum is set beautifully on a section of the old town walls, and the modern buildings contrasting with the ancient stone make a great backdrop for the artworks.
However, it costs €6, was a little empty and didn't take us long to walk round - next time I might just enjoy the view from the (free) sculpture terrace!

It seems to be a bit out of the path of many tourists so there were few guests there. Enjoyed a drink afterwards on their lovely terrace above the marina.

A lovely simple and very welcoming art gallery, easy to walk around and pleasantly fill the time. The coffee shop/restaurant over looking the marina is beautiful & incredibly chilled and one of my favourite places to go and relax over lovely coffee or a glass of vino.
It's also incredibly close to the center of Palma, so easy to pootle up there when you've been in town & relax a little before heading else where.
Definitely worth a visit.

The building is stylish and cool (both culturally and literally - the air conditioning works well) and displays a significant collection of Miro paintings and drawings, and Picasso ceramics. It also has temporary exhibitions by various contemporary artists. The rooftop sculpture walk is very pleasant and the bookshop is well stocked with academic art books. Oddly however the cafe is not air conditioned and bearing in mind the ambient temperature on the day of the visit was not sampled!
