Hello and welcome to our home.

This traditional Majorcan house was built in 1890 by our great-grandparents, and four generations of our family have lived here. Like all these Majorcan properties, there was, on the ground floor, the dining hall, the kitchen, the patio and the stables (this part was restored in the 1960ies). On the first floor are the bedrooms with the bathroom and in the second floor the so-called “porches”, storerooms under the roof, where the families could store, among other things, the “sobrassada”, the typical red Majorcan sausage.

On winter nights our grandparents would tell us rondalles (traditional Majorcan stories) around the fireplace. Thanks to them we got to know the characters from these stories, characters who now live on the upstairs floor.

Bringing the ArtArtà project to life was our family’s dream. At first just on paper, but…it is said that homes protect dreamers and plans that come from the heart, and so it was. On 22 July 2012, our dream of preserving this house bore fruit and, thanks to the enthusiasm of family members and friends, we were able to open ArtArtà. Our main objective is to protect and promote our popular culture.

Showing “the beauty of the world” to children and visitors, and giving our stories the importance which they deserve, is our family’s aim. Today, this house is a cultural center and presents Artà and its precious cultural heritage.

As well as being a museum, the house also hosts the talents of our artisans. We are sure that our grandmother (an artisan who specialised in making woven good from reeds and palm fronds) and our mother, a potter (she is the girl with the basket on our logo), would be proud to see how their home has become a place to sell artisanal goods. Here, local artisans can sell their products and, like the heroes of the stories, you can rest from your journey, enjoying excellent Majorcan bread with oil.

Thank you for your visit and for loving our roots.
