About

Torre de ses Puntes is a former fortress construction and manor house, located in the western district of Manacor.

Torre de ses Puntes is probably built around the 1300s, at a time when this area was the border of Manacor’s urban core.

The building is characterized by Arabic influences, with its battlement of gun slits on top, as yet not shoot shards as we know them, but rather pointy tops.

Torre de ses Puntes underwent a total renovation for more than 30 years ago, but without changing the aesthetics surrounding architecture.

Today, Torre de ses Puntes is used as an exhibition hall for temporary art exhibitions.
