It is not all that easy to find access into one of the grand houses on this island. In the countryside, such mansions are called possessió, whilst in town a better house is called a casa senyorial.

I had the good fortune to be allowed to sneak into one such casa senyorial, Ca’n Llobera in Pollença. Apparently, the Llobera family was the wealthiest family in the town of Pollença. For reasons unbeknown to me their family stead was sold to the Ajuntament de Pollença some years ago. The stately home now stands empty which in many ways is a shame.

Ca’n Llobera is still furnished the way it must have been in the old days, perhaps fifty years ago or a hundred, along with a grand piano and a four poster bed. I particularly enjoyed some of the details, such as the patterned floor tiles, varying from room to room.

If you would like to sneak a visit and have no clue as to how to gain access, you could always do it the tourist way. In the country side you could pay a visit to Els Calderers, between Vilafranca de Bonany and Sant Juan, or Sa Granja, near Esporlas. One town house open to the public would be Ca’n Marquès in Palma de Mallorca. For each of those houses, entry admission is charged but, in my opinion a visit would be worth both, the time and the outlay.

The photo was taken in Pollença, Mallorca, Spain. The date: January 17th, 2009. The time was 12:54:49.

  1. I’m so happy I found your blog.

    Borned Norwegian, but Solleric by heart! Through many years I’ve been on holiday in Puerto de Soller and are looking forward to my 4 weeks in July.

    All the best from
