  • The visit was taken a regnvåt January night. Think that the essential aspects of the total experience passed away due to weather/time. A lot of Miro, but also other artists. A little boring Museum shop.

  • Mallorca stays since its completion, usually also visit Es Baluard is on the agenda. The architecture is superb and very varied. Every time I discover new corners. It must be not always in the exhibition, already upgrading to the building with magnificent views over the port, too. Here you can let your mind wander. Inside there are changing exhibitions, mostly of the 20th century, which have paid off so far anyway. The only small downside is the accessibility. Regional buses stop here far and wide not only the city buses. Because it then for many visitors to lay a long walk back.

  • Great location near the Palma Cathedral, terrific views of the Port of Palma. However, the space can be better utilized with more artwork. Walking down corridors with nothing on the walls. They need a permanent collection, or display local artists...anything. Museums should be full of art!
  • Very nice collection. The building is a work of art in itself. I recommend spending and hour or two here when you're in Palma.
  • Some nice modern art. Some was not to my taste but overall enjoyable. Small restaurant and bar that was refreshing on a hot day. No car park so best to take bus.
  • Small but interesting collection of modern art. Also, it's located in an old fortress. View from the rooftop is spectacular!
  • Great modern art gallery. Good value, especially on Fridays when pay what you like.

Where to stay in Palma de Mallorca

To experience the heart of Palma, opt to stay in the the inner ring of La Avinguadas street, where lies the historical city center. The mostly traffic-free district is filled with beautiful island architecture housing boutique hotels, historical restaurants, and lovely plazas, and is only a short walk from the city beach and port. The Santa Catalina neighborhood is another popular option for accommodation as it is well known for its restaurants, daily market, and close proximity to the city's main sites. Just east of the city center is Portixol, a beachside neighborhood that still retains its charm of an old fishing village. For a small town beach atmosphere, stay along Platja de Palma, the beach stretching east of the city center.
