Puerto Portals, the VIP Port

Puerto Portals was born in 1932 on the table of an artist. The difference it has with natural ports is that it is not used for the loading and unloading of merchandise and therefore for that reason not considered a doorway to other continents, it is rather a gateway to another world: the world of the rich and beautiful, of splendor and pomp.

The yachts that lie at anchor here have above all one thing in common, they are expensive jewels that state that here in this famous place one can step onto the ladder of high society.

You do not have to be the King to eat in the port, though its possible to see one! King Juan Carlos and his family often visit here during the summer just like Claudia Schiffer or Antonio Banderas.

This place is very exclusive just like its visitors and ships berths are highly coveted. It’s quite likely that your boat neighbour could be famous…

“That is the neighbourly back door to Tristan. Many people were afraid of entering the restaurant as they thought they would not know how to comport themselves, so we built the bistro here on the corner where we could cook at another level with equally fresh products in a relaxed atmosphere where the guests can accustom themselves to the tastes and atmosphere of the place”

After drinking in the exquisiteness of the port you start to feel hot under the sun its also possible to take a swim in Portals.  The sandy beach of the same name is only two steps away. Whoever gets the perspiration when listing and connecting consuming of the exquisiteness, can take a bath also in postage of portal. The sandy beach is distant for only one cat-jump.  La Dolçe Vita is really here.

On the docks and on the boats things are not so casual. Here everybody that can, proudly show that they are at their leisure. Though the builders of the harbour work hard the place still seems to have the appearance of a Disney movie set, perfection wherever you look.

In a place of High Society there is no lack of quality boutiques.  Exclusive shopping is available at numerous stores.  The garments are designer wear and nothing is factory made.

While people prepare for the nightlife there is silence over the Port and it is now, with the falling dusk that Puerto  Portals shows its most beautiful face.

Museum Pilar and Joan Miró

In 1956, Joan Miró settled his final residence in Cala Mayor. At that time, none of the numerous blocks of flats, which nowadays surround the Fundació, had been built yet. Miró’s Studio has been designed by the renowned Catalan modern architect Josep Lluis Sert. Joan Miró bequeathed a part of his property to the town of Palma. In 1981 the Foundation has been created.

In 1983, five years after the death of the artist, Pilar Juncosa, Miró’s widow, donated 39 Gouache-paintings to the town of Palma. These were auctioned at Sotheby’s in London and the obtained profit has been used to finance the construction of the building on the Territorio Miró. Nowadays, the Museum Fundació Pilar y Joan Miró is considered to be a dynamic modern cultural centre. It presents a permanent exhibition of Miró’s work, as well as temporary exhibitions dedicated mainly to young artists. The Fundació also organizes workshops for children and young talents. The studio of Joan Miro is, of course, one of the main attractions for visitors.
