A wonderful 18th-century Baroque building with feature courtyard and decorative touches, Casal Solleric is now home to temporary exhibitions specialising in contemporary art and photography.
The building was constructed by the Morell family in the mid-eighteenth century and it is one of the last manor houses built in Palma. The layout is attributed to the Mallorcan architect Gaspar Palmer, while the wrought iron and sculptural decoration are the work of Italian artist Antonio Soldati.
In 1985 it was inaugurated as Exhibition and Documentation Centre of Contemporary Art, run by the City Council of Palma through the Fundació Palma Espai d’Art. It Programmes temporary art exhibitions throughout the year in its various exhibition spaces: main floor, mezzanine, ground floor and Espai Quatre. In accordance with its interdisciplinary character, Casal Solleric has also housed collective exhibitions of design and comics as well as exhibiting the works selected for the annual photography and painting prize “Ciudad de Palma".
