The mansion

The museum is housed in Villalonga’s former home, the charming 17th century mansion of Can Sabater in Binissalem.

The architecture of the house, which allows us to discover an emblematic manor house in Binissalem. From room to room we discover the austerity of that life in the rural environment, the family and individual rituals, the tasks and labors of the subsistence economy.

The Can Sabater building was acquired by the Consell de Mallorca (1996) and renovated to adapt to its new use as a museum. The visit to the house of Can Sabater is an exponent of the stately architecture of Binissalem, a space full of architectural finesse, as well as ethnographic and literary echoes.
