Travel back to the Bronze Age

Mercat del Peix is the old fish market building of Llucmajor, which today functions as an office and stands as a symbol of the rich traditions of trade in the area.

Mercat del Peix is a work of famous architect Jaume Alenyar i Ginard (1869-1945). In 1909, another famous architect, Gaspar Bennassar, was assigned to finish the works adding his famous Mallorcan emblems to the facades. However, due to the financial crisis of the time this project was never carried out. And so, in this way we can say that the building represent both times of wealth and times of need.

The building was finished and inaugurated in 1916, by Macià Caldés Amengual, and was supplied with gas installations for lighting.

It is of modernist character, simple structure and a single plant with very little decoration. Above the entrance portals on each side of the building you can see the coat of arms of Llucmajor.

In 2010, the iron lattices in the windows were replaced with frosted glass.

Mercat del Peix was originally used as a slaughterhouse and market building for trading. However, some years later it was transformed to a fish market and given its name (peix means fish in Mallorquin).
