Banc de Soller

What can Sóller offer you

In the Plaza de la Constitución, to the left of the parish church of Sant Bartomeu de Sóller, we find the headquarters of the now disappeared Banc de Sóller: a building built in 1899 with the mission of guarding the capital of emigrated Soller people who had returned to his town after making fortune abroad.

Between 1910 and 1912 a reform was carried out, financed by the people of Soller who had returned, following an architectural style that also reached Sóller with the migratory wave of the beginning of the century: modernism.

Designed by Joan Rubió i Bellver, a disciple of Antoni Gaudí, the bank's reform fits perfectly with the church of Sant Bartomeu, work of the same architect, and gives a modernist-Gaudinian look to the entire Constitution Square. The three-storey building stands out for the semicircular arch portal, the varied windows with undulating wrought iron railings and the first-floor balcony with double circular grandstand. On this one, the shield of Sóller and the head of a lion, remembering the original function of the building.

On the upper floors we see irregularly designed windows and panels of the facade finishes modified between 1946 and 1949, by the architect Guillem Muntaner.
