The foundations of this attractive late-Renaissance style building date as far back as the 14th century. It was created by order of King Jaume II as a tribunal to resolve disputes between merchants and sailors. The current building was completed at the end of the 17th century and was adjoined to a late-Gothic chapel. Consolat de la Mar opens its doors to visitors on the Day of the Balearic Islands on 1st March.
Consolat de la Mar and the Association of Merchants shared strong ties. Their union led to the construction of the maritime exchange of La Lonja which is located less than 150 metres away.
