Casal Solleric

Monument

One of the few examples in the city of houses built from new in the second half of the 18th century. As such it is the outcome of a unified concept and there are no mediaeval traces in the patio. The design of the house is attributed to the Majorcan Gaspar Palmer.

The decorative elements are the work of the Italian sculptor Antonio Soldatti.  The elegant and sizeable patio with its large segmental arches slopes from Calle de Sant Gaietà towards El Born. The imperial staircase and the gallery on the first floor of the patio also stand out, as does the façade on El Born with its five arches. 

In around 1872 Archduke Ludwig Salvator described the patio in these words: "The patio of this house is one of the most beautiful in Palma, with a magnificent stairway passing under the segmental arches ". In 1975 the house passed from the Morell family to Palma council and was rebuilt so the space could be used for art exhibitions.
