Due to the economic strength that Soller lived in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries we can find many large mansions and houses of modernist and regionalist style scattered throughout the town. Many of these are located on Gran Vía: a widening avenue from the beginning of the century located two blocks from the Constitution Square and the historic city center.
In the number 1 of Gran Vía we find the Vicariate: an old parish house renovated in 1986 and a height of three floors. Highlights a shield with an angel and neo-Gothic molding located on the lintel portal with side brackets. A few meters away, located at No. 9, we find Can Magraner a modernist house attributed to Joan Rubió with the Magraner surname 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 regionalist-style building with a portal of arcane arch and a central balcony. At number 10 is the Can Cremat casal, 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.
At number 27 and 29 of Gran Vía de Sóller we find Can Rebassa and Can Batlet, respectively. Both buildings stand out for the fence with floral ornamentation of modernist style that surrounds them.
At the confluence of Gran Vía with the Plaza de América is Can Cetre, a building that has undergone several uses and transformations, currently shows a balcony with six brackets and, inside, highlights the contribution of ceramic panels of the Roqueta, 1904, with scenes depicting children around the kitchen or dining room.
The Gran Vía is a sample of the civil and religious architecture that was carried out in Sóller at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, but it is not the only place to find buildings of modernist, colonial, historicist, eclectic or regionalist style.
