History

The Carthusian Inn of la Portella
(1626-1821)

The Portella building is a 16th century manor house. It is of great importance due to its typological characteristics: a beautiful portal in the façade and a baroque style patio of great architectural value which has been very well preserved.

The Portella was a small entry that D. Emeterio Quadrado said gave exit to “the rocks of the sea without a beaten path”. In 1256 it was known as Portella del Paborde of Tarragona and before that it was possibly called Hualbelet or Hicolbelet by the Arabs.

In 1472 Don Rodrigo de Borja, who later became Pope Alexander VI, landed next to the inn on his journey from Rome to Madrid, carrying the dispensation of Pope Sixtus IV, for the marriage between Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon.

In 1626, the Order of the Carthusians of Valldemossa bought three houses and joined them to create a single building after a major refurbishment, creating the site that would become the Carthusians second inn in Palma. Over the course of time, the order undertook continuous refurbishment and conditioning works, until they lost their ownership in 1823, when it became a property of the Count of Spain.

Exclusive details

Exclusive details

The portal of the façade

The doorway, which is made up of jambs with ornamental corbels, lintel, frieze with shield and niche containing an image of St. Bruno, is one of the most characteristic elements of the building. Made from stone in 1734, it was in a poor state of conservation, which is reflected in the drawing up of the municipal catalogue in 1985 from 1941 to 1977.
Palacio de Portella

Wandering garden

The garden is a characteristic element of the old Carthusian Inn. It presents a structure divided into four, with different levels, lower than those located next to the main façade of the building.

The way it is designed as a wandering garden, with stone slabs framing the four sowing spaces, gives a very peculiar image reminiscent of religious open air spaces, where much of the time is devoted to meditation and prayer. 
Palacio de Portella

Iron railings on the main stairs

The railings date back to 1734. The balusters are made of French iron and the handrail is made of Spanish iron, which is harder and less ductile.

As they are original elements of the building, they contain sufficient historical and artistic values to be protected.

Charcoal sketch by Friar Manuel Bayeu

Friar Manuel Bayeu was a Carthusian who stayed at the inn in 1804. The analysis of the strokes and the comparisons made with his work, executed in the Valldemossa Charterhouse, leads us to believe that he created the work.

Right foot pulley

It is a wooden drive pulley; its function was to lift packages from the yard.

A fresco painted ceiling on the first floor

On the first floor, a room next to the façade has a vaulted ceiling and is hand painted using the fresco technique with plant motifs that are superimposed on a smooth base. Chronologically we can place the execution of the work in the second half of the 19th century. It is considered to have sufficient historical and artistic values to be protected.

Drum pulley

It is a drum pulley made of wood collected in the inventory of the Carthusians that is kept in the Kingdom Archives of Mallorca. Its function was to extract water from the house’s cistern.
