Due to the economic boom that Sóller lived in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, we can find many of the large houses and houses of Modernist and Regionalist style distributed throughout the entire town. A large number of these are located on the Gran Vía: an avenue of the Soller Valley in the beginning of the century, located two blocks from the Plaça de la Constitució and the historical center of the city.
In number 1 of the Gran Vía we find the Vicaría: a former parochial house renovated in 1986 and a height of three floors. It emphasizes a shield with an angel and neogótica frame located on the portal of lintel with lateral brackets. A few meters away, located at number 9, we find Can Magraner a modernist house attributed to Joan Rubió with the surname Magraner sculpted on the balcony.
Later, at number 15 of the Gran Vía, we find Can Dolç, formerly known as Can Cera and currently the headquarters of the Sollerense Association of Popular Culture, a regional style building with a escarpbar arch portal and a central balcony. In number 10 there is the house of Can Cremat, also called Ca Dona Paula Casesnoves, a building defined as colonial or as an eclectic mix of Italian baroque and French classicism for its porch and terrace full of ornaments and decorative elements.
In number 27 and 29 of the Gran Vía de Sóller we find Can Rebassa and Can Batlet, respectively. Both buildings stand out along the veranda with floral ornamentation of the Modernist style that surrounds them.
At the confluence of the Gran Vía with the plaza of America is Can Cetre, a building that has gone through various uses and transformations, currently shows a balcony with six corbels and, inside, highlights the contribution of ceramic panels of La Roqueta, of 1904, with scenes that represent children around the kitchen or the dining room.
The Gran Vía is a sample of the civil and religious architecture that was carried out in Sóller in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries but it is not the only place to find modernist, colonial, historicist, eclectic or regionalist buildings.
