If you’re an art enthusiast you’re set to have the time of your life when you stay at Club MAC Alcudia. Our resort is located near the ground-breaking Yannick & Ben Jakober Foundation, giving you a unique chance to explore Spain’s captivating artistic tradition when you visit Majorca.

Proud heritage

Club MAC Alcudia is a first-rate family resort that’s based in the historic port town of Alcudia, in sunny Majorca. This Island has a proud history which dates back to Roman times, and signs of its vibrant past can still be spotted across Majorca to this very day.

The Island was a refuge for artists for hundreds of years. This allowed Majorca to develop a distinct artistic culture which produced breath-taking art, music and architecture that inspired some of the greatest creatives in history including Chopin, Ruben Dario, and Joan Miro.

You can explore the Island’s unique artistic character by visiting the Yannick & Ben Jakober Foundation during your stay at Club MAC Alcudia. Located in the serene parkland that lies on the outskirts of Alcudia, the Foundation is a non-profit cultural institution which was created in 1993.

The Foundation is devoted to the conservation and restoration of Spanish heritage and landmarks, as well as promoting the fine arts. It regularly houses a range of painting and sculpture exhibitions which are designed to showcase the art of the Balearic Islands, as well as promote a culture of artistic exchange.
