Sa Torre Cega

Ein Wachturm der gegen die Piratenüberfälle diente. In 1911 entstand daraus der heutige Palast March. Die wohlhabende Familie hat nun daraus Museum gemacht, das man besichtigen kann. Besonders erwänenswert sind die Gärten, in denen der Architekten Gabriel Alomar Esteve (1910-1997) Hand anlegte. Er war sehr vertraut mit italienischen Gärten und at auch in weiteren Anwesen der Familie March gearbeitet.

The March Servera couple selected this beautiful spot on the coast to build what would become a singular recreational villa. It is situated on the site of an ancient watchtower, which was called the „Torre Cega“ (Blind Tower) because it was not visible from the other watchtowers and it only protected Cala Ratjada.

The estate was acquired in 1915 and the following year Guillem Reynés Font (1877-1918) was given charge of the project. Reynés was one of the most notable architects of the early XX Century and his professional relationship with Juan March was fruitful as the latter entrusted him with various projects. Connected initially to Modernism, the work of Reynés evolved towards Regionalism, a style which inspired the work of Sa Torre Cega, considered a representative example of the style in Majorca.

The house has a square layout and is composed of three floors and a tower on one side. The interior is arranged around a central patio, a large garden terrace surrounds the building. In the project carried out by Reynés, what stands out is the force and solidity of the facades and, above all, the imposing access stairway of the house to overcome the abrupt terrain, which was modified at a later date. The house today is the fruit of various reforms, one in 1930, by the architect Guillem Forteza Piña, and another in the decade from 1960 to 1970 when the property passed on to Bartolomé March Servera. At that point important reforms were done to modernise the interior (the new decoration was the work of La Maison Jansen of Paris), covering the patio and applying creative decorative solutions in the contemporary style and Mediterranean taste. It was at this time that famous Sa Torre Cega gardens came to life.
