Museum of footwear and industry

This is the first Museum of Footwear and Leather in the Balearic Islands. It opened fairly recently (in March 2010) and is currently displaying a permanent exhibition of machinery and objects related to the leather industry. It also has space set aside for temporary exhibitions and for holding events such as talks and presentations. The one-storey building is a place dedicated to footwear and to the culture that has grown up around it, which is very important to the city and region. The Museum is housed in the Former Cavalry Barracks, popularly known as the General Luque Barracks. The building was designed by Francesc Roca Simó and alterations were carried out by Captain of Engineers Joaquim Coll Fuster. It was inaugurated in 1915. It is made up of a main structure and several wings which enclose a stone-paved parade ground. The façades have a symmetrical layout. The central part stands forward from the rest and features a Gothic arch leading onto the parade ground
