Fundació Tren de l’Art

Restoration of Can Prunera was possible thanks to the joint effort of the Sóller Railway company and the Serra Art Foundation. In 2006 Javier Mayol Mundó, at that time president of the Sóller Railway company, and Pere A. Serra Bauzà, president of the Serra Art Foundation, signed an agreement by means of which the Tren de l’Art Foundation was created. The Foundation’s goal is to foster cultural and artistic development of the Sóller valley. Afterwards, Sóller Town Council, the Government of the Balearic Islands, the Council of Majorca, and Palma City Council joined the project. Thus, in Sóller, two exhibition halls, Miró and Picasso, were created at the railway station and the Sculptures Park was inaugurated by the sea, at the end of the tramway line that links Sóller and Port de Sóller. In Palma, at the Sóller Railway Station, there is the hall “50 Landscapes of Majorca”. That same year, Can Prunera was purchased in order to turn it into a cultural centre.

After almost three years of restoration and refurbishing, on August 24th, 2009, Can Prunera Museu Modernista was opened. Since its creation, the Foundation has organized a great number of exhibitions, which have turned Sóller into an important meeting point for artistic creation.
