A decidedly average gallery in every respect. Miros by the mile but you'd expect that, and they are far from his best work. Everything else is derivative and not what you'd hope to see. The architects did a spectacular jobbing fitting this inside an old fort and it is worth visiting just for that.

..and a really nice (and small) collection of modern art. The terrace of the cafe is reserved for eating. If you are only in for drinks you will not be able to enjoy the magnificent view over the port and city, but during your visit to the museum you will get plenty of that. Beautiful architecture. Very convincing synthesis of... More

A lovely place to relax outdoors in the sun... we stayed an hour or so.. the sofas and the bamboo screens make you feel cool and rested. We didn't eat here, just coffee but the food looked good and the indoor restaurant looked inviting.

Gentle walk along the Marina to the museum. Very minimalist museum with not that many exhibits. Smart restaurant and coffee shop. Depends on whether you enjoy trips to the Guggenheims!

This place is great for a nice romantic meal or a large group of friends. The food is great and has not disappointed me yet. It's also a great place to sit back relax with a gin in the sunshine after work, or to start a big night out. An all round great place!

A bonus of Es Baluard is that several areas and terraces are open freely without buying a ticket to the museum. The museum itself is a serious contemporary gallery with some challenging and fascinating exhibits including a group of video exhibits on for just a few more days. The permanent collection is also fascinating and the conjunction of pre-modern paintings... More

Walked around Museum, very interesting and the modern architecture integrates well with the old stone walls. We did not go into the museum itself but instead enjoyed a relaxing lunch in the restaurant, with its outdoor area and very pleasant setting. Having read some reviews we were pleasantly surprised by the contemporary but fresh menu on offer. My fish was... More

The architect turned this place into a gem. Within the ancient fort they were able to create a 3 floor modern museum with museum shop and added a coffee shop and restaurant with a terrace and splendid view of the bay and the cathedral.

This contemporary art gallery has been constructed within the old city walls of Palma. The exhibition spaces and outside features are beautiful, on lots of levels, and on the top, affording magnificent panoramic views. The art work there is not quite so impressive, but we loved the exhibition in the basement - not to be missed. Very much worth a... More
