Rooftop in Palma de Mallorca, Cathedral from Hotel Palacio Can Marqués Palma

Glam Custodian

There is something decidedly decadent about the restored Palacio Can Marques in Palma, filled with worldly treasures, mementoes, a repertoire of good taste and creative richness set to the powdered romance of Baroque classicism. Discreetly tucked away down a narrow meandering cobblestoned street of Palma’s historic La Lonja, is a lost treasure. A former 18th-century Mallorcan palace built for a wealthy marqués merchant in 1760, is now one of Palma’s most noble 5-star Palacio’s of style, renovated into a seductively glamorous grand hotel of casual luxe.

Palacio Can Marques cranks up luxury whilst being a chilled sort of insider’s clubhouse, an address where the nomads of good taste opt to reside when in Palma.  This is certainly a lavish aristocratic mansion with an aura of calm grandeur and opulence which greets you in its ornamented Baroque entrance hall. An impressive atrium with a soaring 11-metre high vaulted ceiling is flanked by Gothic alabaster columns. The Palacio has homed Palma’s nobility and the honey-coloured stone walls have witnessed the whispered tales of merchant trade deals, nautical explorations and the secrets of Palma’s dignitaries.
