This house, palatial by any definition, was one of several residences of the phenomenally wealthy March family. Sculptures by 20th-century greats including Henry Moore, Auguste Rodin, Barbara Hepworth and Eduardo Chillida grace the outdoor terrace. Within lie many more artistic treasures from such luminaries of Spanish art as Salvador Dalí and Barcelona's Josep Maria Sert and Xavier Corberó. Not to be missed are the meticulously crafted figures of an 18th-century Neapolitan belén (nativity scene).

Entry is through an outdoor terrace display of modern sculptural works, of which centre stage is taken by Corberó's enormous Orgue del Mar (1973), or perhaps Rodin's Torse de l’Homme qui Tombe (1882).

Inside, more than 20 paintings by Dalí around the themes 'Alchemy and Eternity' catch the eye, as does the belén's 1000-plus detailed figures, from angels to kings, shepherds, farm animals and market scenes, making up a unique representation of Christ’s birth.

Upstairs, the artist Josep Maria Sert (1874–1945) painted the main vault and music room ceiling. The vault is divided into four parts, the first three representing three virtues (audacity, reason and inspiration) and the last the embodiment of those qualities in the form of Sert’s patron, Juan March (1917–98). One of the rooms hosts an intriguing display of maps of the Mediterranean, produced by Mallorcan cartographers in medieval and early modern times.
