Discover Catalan Modernism's impact on the city of Palma.

Modernism's arrival in Majorca was thanks to the presence of key figures in Catalan Modernism such as Antoni Gaudí i Cornet and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, amongst others, who came to the island to carry out commissions.The majority of Modernist works came about as the result of private initiative driven by the new Majorcan bourgeoisie that, at the start of the 20th century, grew wealthy thanks to commerce, industry and emigration. The generation of local architects adopted the new style, leaving its imprint on a collection of buildings intended for social life, the private sphere and the world of commerce and industry.
