Located in the heart of the capital on Paseo del Borne, a sumptuous and majestic palace built in the mid-18th century can be found. This establishment showcases a Rococo, Italian and French architectural style and is one of the main heritage sites in the city.
A visit to this cultural centre will surprise you from the entrance. Distributed on three floors and rooted by a central courtyard, which is testimony of the stately architecture of houses that are commonly found in Palma.
Upon entering, we make a journey through time, and get to know how houses were built more than 50 years ago. The most superior materials were used for the construction of the building, such as marbles and stones from Santanyí or, fascinatingly, the floor tiles from Holland.
Diverse exhibition spaces can be found around the central courtyard, one of the most outstanding in the capital, which throughout the year, develops an extensive program of exhibitions of both national and international scope.
One of its attractions is to become familiar with the local art scene. Among its rooms, attention is drawn to the ‘Espai Quatre’ space, two small vaulted warehouses in the basements that formerly served as a cistern to conserve oil. The visual impact of this space is created by converging the original structures with the most avant-garde and conventional elements.
Thanks to its scholarship and competition program, it manages to develop its main objective, becoming a platform for dissemination, research and training. Throughout the year a residential program is launched, where interventions designed exclusively for the centre can be contemplated.
