“Go! Beautiful grounds and insightful to see the artist's grounds.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

Worth the visit- take a taxi or bus. Once you are there, the grounds are lovely to walk around. My only criticism is that it could provide more information about Miro and his life. Although there was some info around, it was minimal and assumes you already know alot about Miro before visiting.
Inspiring nonetheless, especially the studio and house.

“MIRO Foundation & Museum is another must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2008

Joan (Juan/John) Miro purchased the building in 1959, that now houses the Miro Foundation & Museum.

This was his second studio and eventually became his primary residence, where he lived until his death.

The collection of statues and the architecture of the building is worth the trip in of itself. The building has an infinity (vanishing/ disappearing) edge fountain, that contains some artworks.

It is on the outskirts of town, difficult to find, but well worth the effort.

I agree with the prior evaluations of the site...the tours of Miro's studio gives insights into his "madness" and creative genius.

“Deep insights into the work and life of a modern master”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2005

My wife and I, both occasional painters, and two friends drove to the Foundation from the village of Pollenca. Our high expectations were met by the combination of interesting architecture and many well-displayed works of the master. The inevitable gift shop offered several useful books on Miro, other artists, and art technique, the usual teeshirts,prints, and postcards, plus several rather clever objects that captured the spirit of the artist and his era.

The gardens (containing a few sculptures) and workshops were an unexpected bonus, and the high point of our tour was the studio, which gave deep insights into his technique.

If you are familiar with his work, this is a must-see, well worth the return fare via budget airline from London, and if you don't know his work, you should. While there, the National Gallery is worth a long afternoon, and local food could be the subject of an entire review.
