In Mallorca there is much to see and much to do.
One of the charms of the center of Palma de Palma de Mallorca is its range of architectural styles and emblematic buildings. From Berkshire Hathaway Nova Mallorca we invite you to discover 7 buildings to admire. Do not miss this trip.

La Seu, catedral de Palma

We start the route in style, with the Cathedral-Basilica of Santa Maria, better known as La Seu. Gothic style, not only its location in front of the sea impresses. Its incredible structure of flying buttresses holds the three naves that make the interior space something admirable to see. The first architect of the project was Ponç des Coll, later Jaime Fabre. Later, Antonio Gaudí made an intervention in its interior that is worth visiting.

The Lonja building is an icon of Gothic architecture with Burgundian influences. This mercantile building dates from the first half of the 15th century and was created by Guillem Sagrega, a renowned Mallorcan architect and sculptor. It is notable for its helicoidal columns that unload their ribs on the roof. 


Building Can Corbella

Of pre-modernist and neo-Mudejar style, the building of Can Corbella is one of the most representative buildings of Palma. It was built by the architect Nicolau Lliteres at the end of the 19th century. It stands out for its octagonal tower and stained glass windows framed by horseshoe arches.

The Casasayas building was designed by the architect Francesc Roca who began the project, which was later completed by the architect Guillem Roca. It is a modernist monument built between 1908 and 1911. With curved elements taken from the proportions and rules of nature, this building has an original symmetry and diligence, following the modern "Art Nouveau" trend.

Bellver Castle has to appear on this list for its originality. This round castle has a colonnaded courtyard with balconies and its rooms can be visited. It was built at the beginning of the 14th century by King Jaime II of Mallorca, but the work gained importance when Pere Salvá joined the project. It is a remarkable example of medieval architecture.


The Royal Palace La Almudaina

The Royal Palace of the Almudaina, host of countless concerts and events, has a long history: from the Roman, Islamic and Christian Palma. King Jaime II ordered it to be built over the Arab palace, commissioning the architect Ponç des Coll. It was built in the 14th century in the Levantine Gothic style.


Building La Caixa Forum

Location in google maps

This building of Catalan modernist style was built in the 20th century. In 1993 it reopened its doors, after Lluís Domenech i Montaner, accompanied by the Mallorcan architect Jaume Aleñá and the sculptor Eusebi Arnau, carried out the remodeling. Oriental elements stand out, giving it a very particular aesthetic.


Now that they are on the agenda, the only thing left to do is to enjoy Palma in all its splendor.
