“A bit out of the way but well worth a visit”

Pilar and Joan Miro Foundation in Mallorca
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The foundation is based in the former home and studio of Joan Miro supplemented by a modern gallery displaying the main collection of his work.His more famous works are elsewhere but there's enough of a selection here to get a flavour of his style and development as an artist. The other buildings on site are a modern studio that Miro had designed, which is an excellent representation of the way he worked, still filled with canvases and objects of inspiration, and an old farmhouse that he also used as a studio, including sketches on the walls. The cafe, with outdoor seating in a courtyard is good and it's well worth arranging your visit to coincide with a lunch stop. The Foundation is on the tourist sightseeing bus route, with a stop outside, but note that only alternate buses come this way so check before getting on. Otherwise bus 46 has a stop down the hill, with a bit of a hike to the Foundation

A short bus trip from Palma centre, this is a lovely place to visit for any fan of Modern Art and Miro in particular. The building layout and grounds offer tranquillity from the bustling city. The main exhibition area has an extensive number of Miro paintings and sculpture. The smaller studios where Miro worked were also a treat to see and the views of the bay were beautiful.
We visited with Foundation with two young children who although don't have much care for art enjoyed wandering through the spacious rooms and seeing the bright, bold paintings Miro was most famous for.

Visited on a Tuesday and cost 6 Euros per adult. Free on Saturdays.

Gallery dedicated to Joan Miro and his wife Pilar. There is a good exhibition of his work including sculpture, you can visit his studios which give an impression of how he worked and what inspired him. It's all in a nice setting in hillside with a cafe in garden. The architecture if the gallery is interesting in its own right.

Free at weekends, the grounds and buildings are amazing and worth a visit even if you aren't into art.

Ok, so this spot is a bit of a way out of Palma's city centre (not really within walking distance, even for the heartiest of hiking souls). But is it ever worth the bus trip! Fabulous wee gallery, lush gardens, and Miro's authentic studios. A must-see for any arts buff. And I went on a Saturday, so admission was free (bonus!). The views of the Mediterranean as you climb up the steps to Miro's arts house are nothing short of spectacular.
