Dominating the square that has long been the heart of municipal power in Palma is the ajuntament . The baroque facade hides a longer history: the town hall building grew out of a Gothic hospital raised here shortly after the island's conquest. On the top floor of the main facade sits En Figuera, as the town clock is affectionately known. The present mechanism dates to 1863 and was purchased in France, but a clock has tolled the hours here for centuries.
You can generally enter the foyer only, in which you will see a Gothic entrance, a fine sweeping staircase and, probably, half a dozen gegants (huge figures of kings, queens and other characters that are paraded around town on people's shoulders during fiesta) in storage.
