Museum Sa Bassa Blanca
Since 1993, Alcúdia has housed the Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober Foundation, probably the most important art foundation within Spain. The main building of the property was designed by Hassan Fathy. It is an example of work based upon the principle of the Nubian mud brick construction.
There is a subterranean exhibition hall which contains the exhibition called ‘Children’ (Nins). This comprises 136 portraits of children dated between the 16th and the 19th centuries. More than 50 of them are permanently on view. The rest of them travel from one international museum to another. Diverse works by Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu, an important archive by the artist Domenico Gnoli, and other contemporary art pieces are on display.
Another feature is the English rose garden with more than 100 varieties of rose which can be visited during May and the first two weeks of June.
