Situated on the eastern outskirts of Palma in a charismatic little fishing village, the sandy beach is only about half a kilometer away from Can Pere Antoni – the city center’s beach. It is not the biggest one, but offers a nice promenade filled with charming little cafes and restaurants, and is away from the main road.

Passing the “Raixa”, the museum is sited right at the entrance to the tunnel that connects Palma to Sóller. The access consists of a wide avenue, or Roman “paseo de salon”, with three lanes of large plane trees, that reaches the “Clastra” ( the typical “patio” of Majorcan country houses of a certain importance, called “possesions” ).
Historic references indicate that this was once the home of the Arabic Viceroy of the island. The structure of the house has Roman-Andalusian roots. We find features and elements of different styles: Arabic, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Roman, Rococo and even English in the decoration of the rooms. The gardens are certainly a fine example of Moorish garden design, where the emphasis is on water and irrigation.

At the foot of the mountains Serra de Tramuntana , Raixa is part of Spanish cultural heritage for its high historical and artistic value. Located in a privileged place that was highly valued by the Arabs when establishing their settlements, because the area has one of the most valued resources – water. You can find it in the area of Bunyola (direction Sóller).
