Almacenes El Águila information
Lonely Planet review
Gaspar Bennàssar (1869–1933) – one of the most influential architects in modern Palma, his native city – played with various styles during his long career, including Modernisme. An outstanding example of this is the Almacenes El Águila, built in 1908. Each of the three floors is different and the generous use of wrought iron in the main facade is a herald of the style.
