As well as beautiful, nature filled landscapes, mild temperatures and plenty of sunny days, the north of Majorca also has a colourful art and culture scene, amongst which are numerous museums and galleries with varied exhibitions. If you are looking to buy property on the island and are interested in art and the cultural landscape of Majorca, the real estate agency Engel & Völkers Mallorca North is a great starting point to link up and begin your adventure.
Thinking that Mallorca is only sun and sand? Rethink Majorca, the cultural calendar is full with classical concerts, opera, theatre and diverse exhibitions. As the owner of an authentic finca or a spacious villa in the north of Majorca, a varied selection of different venues are near to your.
A must visit is the unique Sa Bassa Blanca Museum in Alcúdia, housed within an incredible fusion of nature and architecture and featuring a 15th century Mudejar coffered ceiling, which has been declared a cultural heritage site of the Balearic Islands. Other highlights of the museum are the numerous animal sculptures, a collection of masks in the Socrates room and the rose garden with more than 100 different species.
In Alcudia, the Roman city of Pollentia, one of the most important archaeological sites in Majorca, is very impressive. Consisting of the settlement of La Portella, the forum (town square) and the theatre, La Portella is characterised by the remains of the three Roman houses, the house of the two treasures, the house of the bronze head and the house of the northeast. In the Forum you can see the remains of the Temple of Capitonile, as well as two other temples and some taverns. Parts of the theatre stage, and orchestra are preserved along with the characteristic seating carved into the stone on a natural slope.
Once you have bought and settled into your new country finca in the north of Majorca, be sure to visit the Pollentia Monographic Museum, located near the Church of Sant Jaume in Alcudia and inaugurated in 1987. The museum exhibits objects excavated from the nearby POLLENTIA archaeological dig site. The collection has two displays, the first are everyday objects from the ancient Roman City such as crockery, kitchen utensils and jewellery, and the second depicts public life in the form of sculptures, inscriptions and architectural elements.
Engel & Völkers recommends a visit to the Dionís Bennàssar Museum in Pollensa, named after the local artist. Ponder the painter’s impressive works of art, including watercolours, sculptures and drawings. Dionís Bennássar’s personal objects and furniture are also on display. Another wonderful venue is the Sanctuary De Lluc Monastery, also known as the Lluc Sanctuary, which was built in the 13th century and is located in the middle of the Serra de Tramuntana. The monastery is an important place of pilgrimage and also the spiritual centre of the island. The first and second floors of the main building of the monastery complex house the museum, which opened in 1952. Here you can see a gallery of paintings by Majorcan painters from the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum rooms also include the Cámara Mallorquina, which is a replica of a bedroom in an 18th and 19th century house. Discover the important monastery after buying a finca or a villa, and check out the museums listed below.
