Museu Sa Bassa Blanca

Es Mal Pas, 07400 Alcúdia, Spain
Description:

In the main building realised by Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy, the visitor can find a collection of modern and contemporary art. The Museum also boasts a “Mudejar” polychrome coffered ceiling in the last room, dated 1498, from Tarazona (Zaragoza) and declared "Heritage of the Balearic Islands". The outstanding feature of Sa Bassa Blanca is undoubtedly the building designed by Hassan Fathy (Cairo,1900-1989). White crenellated walls, traditional vaults and domes punctuate the otherwise flat terraces of the edifice sur- rounding a central courtyard with gardens and fountains. Most windows are covered by wooden lattices called “mushrabeyehs” and the doors and floor tiling are antique elements brought from Andalucía, Northern Spain and Morocco
