patio of Can Vivot manor in Palma

Ca’n Vivot offers one of Palma’s most beautiful courtyards

This house was rebuilt in the late 17th and early 18th centuries on a medieval base for Joan Sureda Villalonga who, in 1717, became the first Marquis of Vivot. From 1690 he was already carrying out an in-depth reconstruction of the original house. In around 1872, Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria observed that “the patio is splendid and should be counted amongst the most beautiful in Palma”.
