Museu d'Es Baluard (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Palma) Review

At the western end of the city, this museum rises on a long-neglected archaeological site, parts of which date back to the 12th century. The building itself is an outstanding convergence of old and new: the exhibition space uses the surviving 16th-century perimeter walls of the fortified city, including a stone courtyard facing the sea and a promenade along the ramparts. There are three floors of galleries, and the collection includes work by Miró, Picasso, Henri Magritte, Tapiès, Alexander Calder, and other major artists. The courtyard café-terrace Restaurant del Museu (Nov.–May, Tues.–Sun. 10–8; Jun.–Oct. 10 am–midnight) affords a fine view of the marina.
