The fate of Palma’s Pueblo Español could change in the near future.
Nuevo Pueblo Español
Kühn & Partner, the real estate group which owns the extraordinary museum – a collection of replica buildings from all over Spain – wants to make it available for residential use.
Kühn has submitted a proposal to the town hall for the complex to be converted into apartments, but the planning department has stressed the need to consider ‘general interest’.
Built in 1967 and designed by architect Fernando Chueca Gotilla, Pueblo Español lies on the outskirts of Palma in the area of Son Espanyolet, and captures the unique architecture of Spanish history, complete with city depictions and pedestrian walkways and squares.
