Fundacion La Caixa

The Fundacio la Caixa is located in one of the most significant buildings of the city, which was formerly the Gran Hotel. The Fundacio la Caixa took over this modernist building in 1993 and has turned it into an architectural beauty and furthermore with a first class programme of cultural and art events.

The Gran Hotel is the founding father of Mallorcan hotels. The building was designed by the Catalan architect Luis Domene Muntaner and is the first important example of modernism on the island. It was built between 1901 and 1903, has 5 floors with the facades intricately decorated, especially at the open areas, with sculpture formed by the combination of human, animal and vegetable themes.

The Caja de Pensiones of Barcelona carefully restored this building, which was opened in July 1993 and it is now the headquarters of the Fundacion la Caixa. It houses various temporary exhibition halls, a library specializing in contemporary art and the Anglada Camarasa collection, which consists of 79 oil paintings and 125 sketches from this Catalan painter who resided in the Pollensa area. There is also a cafe-restaurant with large windows that offer a view of Palma life.

Within these walls there have been exhibits of work from Rembrandt and sculptures of Rodin. Programming is done in conjunction with their offices in Barcelona, and this place offers both residents and visitors the chance to see works of art that it would normally be very difficult to find on the island.
