King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain have just arrived at Marivent Palace for their first summer holiday as the country’s reigning monarchs. Of course, they brought along their two pretty daughters: Leonor, Princess of Asturias, and Princess Sofía.

Here, ten things you should know about Marivent Palace:

Marivent means sea and wind in Catalan language.

The palace is a modern building located in the tourist resort of Cala Major in Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain.

Marivent doesn’t belong to the group of residences of the Spanish Royal Family but its ownership belongs to the Community of the Balearic Islands.

The palace was built by the architect Guillem Forteza Pinya2 between 1923 and 1925, commissioned by the painter Juan de Saridakis.

The artist lived there until his death. Afterwards, in 1966, his widow, Anunciacion Marconi Taffani, gave the building and its grounds to the Provincial Government of the Balearic Islands.

The condition was to create a museum with the name of the painter open to the public.

However, in 1973, Marivent Palace was transferred to Felipe VI father, King Juan Carlos I, a fact which caused that the descendants of Saridakis denounced the authorities to the courts.

Marivent Palace was used by King Juan Carlos I and his family in summer, when they participate in the sailing competition of the Copa del Rey in Palma de Mallorca.

Although Marivent Palace is a private residence, it has also served for official functions and interviews.

Definitely, it is a beautiful building with sea views. We imagine that Queen Letizia of Spain is happy there with her family. Remember that the royal couple ascended the throne in June.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
