Plaza Porta Santa Catalina is located between Parc de Sa Feixina and Palma’s Old Town neighbourhood of La Lonja. The square is home to the sculpture popularly known as ‘the upside down house’, and officially, ‘Device root out evil’ by Dennis Openheim.

The giant granite pigeons are the work of Ben Jakober, co-founder of Sa Bassa Blanca Museum in Alcúdia. There’s plenty more art to be viewed here, at the Es Baluard Contemporary Art Museum. In the opposite corner is the Can Sales public library. Beyond the library is the Church of Santa Cruz, which was one of the first churches built in the city.
Despite the central location, Plaza de Porta Santa Catalina is a quiet square and serves as a scenic crossing to reach Santa Catalina or La Lonja. There are only a couple of restaurants and cafés. From time to time the neighbours of Puig de Sant Pere hold events here. These include a second hand market every last Saturday of the month between 10.30 and 14.30. The square is also used to host horse shows during the Day of the Balearic Islands on 1st March.
