This corner of Palma is synonymous with modernity. Fans of contemporary and 20th century art must pay a visit to the Juan March Foundation Museum, which houses works from artists like Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Juan Gris, Antoni Tàpies and Miquel Barceló. Temporary exhibitions, some of which are produced in-house and others come from its namesake in Madrid, accompany the permanent collection.
And if the content impresses you, so will where it is housed. The museum is located in a traditional 17th century stately home named Can Gallard del Canyar, which was acquired by the March family in 1916 to establish its residency in Palma. The building was restored by architect Guillem Reynésat the request of the family. Its entrance and marvellous staircase will amaze you; you cannot help but enter into one of Palma‘s magical universes.
The Juan March Foundation Museum offers guided visits and workshops, as well as conferences, music concerts and different educational activities for schools and universities.You simply must pay it a visit as it provides a breath of cultural fresh air between ambling in and out of shops.
