Back in the 1800’s, a great amount of Mallorcans returned from America and France, after they had immigrated to seek fortunes.
They returned to Sóller with great fortunes and great cultural knowledge, making them a new social elite.
A symbol of the new and good times, was manifested in this building construction that was done by Joan Rubió i Bellver, the same person who did the parish church of Sant Bartomeu. Bellver also did the unique open-air church Esglesia Nova in Son Servera.
In the years 1910-1912, the building facade was renovated in order to give it the same exterior as the church.
Joan Rubió i Bellver, who was a disciple of Antoni Gaudí, pays his master a tribute with the double balcony, the arched entrance and the very beautiful and detailed ironworks.
