Palma de Mallorca

Owned by the City Council of Palma since 1982 and now headquarters of the Municipal Archives. In the thirteenth century the building was ordered to be rebuilt on remains of the Islamic era and was property of a Jewish lineage until 1450, when it was acquired by Salvador Sureda. In 1647 it passed, by marriage, to the Bordils family, which sir name has survived as the name of the manor, although after that it has been occupied by other families of the Majorcan nobility.

The facade shows a flat split over three floors with Portal of a semicircular arch and Renaissance windows. The courtyard, a square base and in the form of a cloister, has a covered part which preserves a beautiful wood paneling as on the first floor, the latter dating from the sixteenth century. It has undergone several reforms, among which the one done in the courtyard by the architect Guillem Forteza (1892-1943).

It houses a permanent exhibition which, through explanatory panels tells the story of the archive itself and the building, plus a representative sample of all the collections from 1206 to present. In the near future, it will become a center of interpretation of the Jewish quarter of Palma and a space to accommodate book presentations, conferences and art exhibitions.
