Hotel Basilica since the 14.th Century
Hotel Basilica is located in an historic palace in the heart of the Old Town of Palma de Mallorca. The building which, is still family owned, was built in the 17th century and since then passed on from generation to generation. An archeological study reveals that the plot of land on which the original building was built was a vegetable and fruit garden from the “Franciscanos” from the neighboring church The Basilica de San Francisco, from which Hotel Basilica has its name. An original gothic arch dating from the 14th century, which still unrestored, is visible in the breakfast room and maintained as an original Gothic construction from the franciscanos garden throughout last centuries, when in 1700 the actual building was built “around” it. It was in the year 2015 when first plans to a hotel conversion of the original building where discussed.
During planning and construction special attention was given to maintain the original character of the building such as original arches, wooden beams, handmade traditional floors and tiling by local craftsmenbut also meeting highest standards in acoustic insulation and low emission climatizing. In June 2019, after 4 years of planing, construction and designing tailor made furniture, the historical palacio opened its doors as Hotel Basilica. The result a Hotel with a homely family feel, tranquil hideaway in Palma with cozy rooms and a superb rooftop overlooking the Old Town of Palma, the bay, as well as all main churches and the Cathedral of Palma.
