Modernism - The influence of Gaudí

A ground-breaking legacy that continues to captivate

Modernism drew on new shapes and colours to break with the prevailing classicism in the early 20th century. In Palma’s case, the city has vibrant and stunning examples of this radical movement, the greatest exponent of which, Antoni Gaudí, left his mark and influence on Mallorca through his legacy in the Cathedral. But Gaudí was not the only one whose footsteps would be followed by local architects: Lluís Domènech i Muntaner also blazed the trail by designing the Gran Hotel, one of the most important modernist buildings in Palma.
