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.
