Dental Clinic in the Modernist Style


What you and I call Art Nouveau or Art Deco, even Jugendstil, is called Modernismo in Spain. Prime examples of Modernismo are the buildings of Antoní Gaudí.

In Palma de Mallorca we are fortunate to have some prime examples of buildings in the Modernismo style, such as here in Calle Colom, between Plaza Mayor and the Ayuntamiento (town hall). You may know it; it used to be a Clinica Dental, and it still says so on its façade. It was built by Lluís Forteza i Rey in 1906 and clearly shows Gaudí’s influence.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 3rd, 2007. The time was 16:44:46.
