Centre Cultural Contemporani Pelaires

Palma de Mallorca

This private cultural centre – Palma's first dedicated contemporary-art space – is as interesting for its architecture as for its ever-changing exhibitions. The building, Can Verí, is a beautiful 17th-century townhouse that was also used for a while as a convent.
