The Palma De Mallorca Art Trail
Mallorca
Palma, Mallorca, has a long and rich artistic history which has long made the city the cultural capital of the Balearic Islands. Home to a wide variety of excellent year-round museums, intimate artist studios open to the public and stunning art galleries, Palma is an ideal location for travellers who have a thirst to learn more about art. Here Palma 365 presents the museums and art events which make Palma an artistic hub:

The Miro Mallorca Fundació – the museum in Palma which honours the life and work of Catalan artist Joan Miró – is a ‘must-see’ for art enthusiasts. The Fundació is a museum where visitors can admire some of the finer pieces of Joan Miró’s art collection, and the artist’s old workshop. Designed by Miro’s friend Josep Lluis Sert, the workshop, which is connected to his house, became the artist’s main studio in 1956 and was where he created most of his work until his death. The museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 to 18.00 and on Sunday from 10 to 15.00 and is closed on Mondays. www.miromallorca.com

The Museu Fundació Juan March is an exceptional museum located in the heart of Palma in a 17th century mansion. The museum houses a small but important group of carefully selected pieces of 20th century art by artists that have played their part in defining contemporary art in Spain including Picasso, Miró, Juan Gris and Salvador Dalí. The Fundació March will showcase a group of seventy-five pieces of art by Hans Hinterreiter, a Swiss artist who spent most of his life in Ibiza, until May 26th. Entrance to the Museu Fundació Juan March is free and opening hours are from 10 to 18.30 from Monday to Friday, and 10.30 to 14.00 on Saturdays. www.march.es/arte/palma
