Almacenes El Águila

Historic Building in Palma de Mallorca

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, a department store built in 1908. Each of the three floors is different and the generous use of wrought iron in the main facade is a signature of the style.
