Centre Maimó ben Faraig
Museum in Palma
Situated in Palma’s historic quarter, the Maimó ben Faraig Centre serves as a significant hub for promoting awareness of the Jewish cultural heritage in Mallorca. When approaching the center from the outside, visitors can catch sight of the Almudaina gate, which lends its name to the street it occupies. However, it’s within the center’s walls that the rich history of Mallorca’s Jewish culture comes to life.
Upon entering, visitors have the opportunity to view the ancient Roman walls, which provide valuable insights into the layout and ambiance of the historical Jewish quarters. The permanent exhibition within the center, featuring photographs and maps, further enhances one’s understanding of this heritage.
The Maimó Ben Faraig Centre not only serves as a cultural center dedicated to preserving and showcasing Jewish culture in the city but also functions as one of Palma’s official municipal tourist information offices, offering valuable resources for tourists seeking to explore the city’s history and attractions.
