Steep yourself in culture

The range of culture on offer in Mallorca can tend to go unnoticed, but it is considerable. In Palma there are important museums and exhibitions: the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, the Es Baluard Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the March Foundation, the Museum of Mallorca, the La Caixa Foundation, etc… Not far from Son Alegre you can visit the modest but interesting Muro Ethnographic Museum, the Fray Junípero Serra House/Museum in Petra and the Artà Regional Museum. In Alcúdia you can visit Pollentia, an important settlement of Roman origin, and the Sa Bassa Blanca Museum, a surprising, welcoming place where you can find everything from a curious collection of child portraits from the 16th to the 19th century to works by important contemporary artists. Meanwhile, we must not ignore the fact that the municipality of Santa Margalida has the greatest density of Talaiotic remains (prehistoric culture) on the island. As an example, 2 km from Can Picafort, on the coastline itself, is the Son Real Necropolis, a spectacular site unique in the Mediterranean.
