Can Olesa

We are now in another symbolic street of the old quarter, where there is a large number of mansions, most of which have been converted. The best-preserved building is Can Olesa, one of the most famous mansions in Palma. The façade still has an early wall, dating back to the 16th century, with Renaissance windows displaying the coats of arms of the Descós family. The current house is the result of renovation work at the end of the 17th century, arranged around a magnificent central courtyard. This courtyard is one of the earliest examples of the Mallorcan Baroque patio, with its characteristic columns, extraordinarily low arches and a staircase crowned by a gallery of three arches. This house is one of the few in the city still boasting its original period interior. It was declared a Historical and Artistic Monument in 1973.
