Majorca has been a crossroads of the Mediterranean since prehistory, and this museum reflects that. A must for history buffs.
A fascinating overview stretching back to ancient history.
Throughout its history, this Balearic island has suffered countless invasions, colonisations, and other vicissitudes — probably in no small part because of its strategic position on Mediterranean trade and naval routes. This museum in the former palace of the counts of Aiamans (Calle Portella 5) covers the whole compelling panorama, from prehistoric artifacts of the island's first settlers to the Roman-era fort, the Moorish rulers, the Christian reconquest, and more (one especially notable work being the altarpiece of Sant Bernat).
