Concierge.com's insider take:
Set in the hills just outside the city of Palma, the artist Joan Miró and his wife, Pilar, opened the foundation in 1981 as a place to promote art in all its forms and to provide young artists with a space to work in. The original structure, which included four workshops used by Miró, was expanded in 1986 with the addition of a wing by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Rafael Moneo. The foundation has a permanent collection of works donated by Miró, including paintings, sketches, and sculpture all produced during the time he spent in Mallorca. The rest of the space includes an exhibition gallery, an auditorium, a library with many of the artist's personal documents, and the ever-present museum shop. There's also a young artists' workshop on the upper floor, and a recently opened space in the basement to exhibit the works these artists produce.
