Convent of Sant Domingo
Convent and Museum in Pollenca
The Convent and Cloister of Sant Domingo stands as a defining landmark in the town, its construction taking place between 1588 and 1616, and its aesthetic appeal truly remarkable. The Baroque cloister, renowned for its four arched walkways, is nothing short of breath-taking. Since 1962, this cloister has been the venue for Pollenca’s annual Classical Music Festival, held during the months of July and August. Additionally, the convent hosts the delightful Pollença Arts & Crafts Fair every November, as well as the Wine Fair at the end of April or beginning of May.
Within the cloisters, you’ll also find the Museum of Pollença, which houses prehistoric sculptures resembling bulls and a mandala (Tibetan sand painting) gifted by the Dalai Lama in 1990. The museum boasts a collection of contemporary art and pieces by the artist Atilio Boveri. Adjacent to the convent, you can explore the Joan March gardens, graced by a 17th-century tower.
