The Museum of Pollença

Pollença’s Municipal Museum is located in the old cloister of the Convent of Sant Domingo which was built between 1588 and 1616; the Dominican friars remained until 1836.

The museum houses a large collection of archeological exhibits including prehistoric and Gothic sculptures and contemporary paintings from the region. There is also a collection of works by the famous Argentinian ceramicist, painter, engraver and furniture maker Atilio Boveri who lived on the Island from 1912 to 1915.

A Buddhist mandala in the form of a Tibetan sand painting was given to the museum by the Dalai Lama during his visit to the Island in 1990.
