One of Mallorca's standout galleries, Ca'n Prunera occupies a landmark Modernista mansion. The list of luminaries here is astonishing – works by Joan Miró, along with single drawings by Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Gauguin, Klimt, Kandinsky, Klee, Man Ray and Cezanne. Also part of the permanent collection is a gallery devoted to Juli Ramis (1909–90), a Sóller native and world-renowned painter who had his studio in the neighbouring village of Biniaraix, plus works by Miquel Barceló, Antoni Tapiès and Eduardo Chillida.

There's also the strangely mesmerising Movement (2006) by Francesca Martí, a sculpture garden out the back, and a display of dolls from the early 20th century… In total, a rich and varied selection.

But this is so much more than a who's who of European masters and the building itself complements the eclectic collection. The mansion is a study in Modernista style, from the muted but intriguing stone and wrought-iron facade to the elaborate ceilings and early-20th-century furnishings.
