Default Abandoned building in Pollensa

I have been meaning to ask about this for ages

In Pollensa Town just along the road from cellar el molÝ there is an abandoned building. It is quite grand ..... looks like it could have been a large house or a monestary or similar. There is quite a bit of land behind it and lots of ornate pillars etc in the garden area

Just wondered if anyone knew anything about it?

I sure this has been discussed before and remember the answer was an old carpet factory.

The piece below plus Pic (I hope) confirms this

In Pollenša, there is the once beautiful building of Can Moratˇ, an erstwhile carpet factory (photo centre), now in a deplorable state.

They were talking about making it into a museum at one stage, it is a waste, I expect the owner is siting on it waiting to sell it

Let's hope it can be saved and restored as close to its original state before some developer and/or architect demolishes it and builds something faceless there.
Once it's gone it's gone forever.

We used to park opposite this building every Sunday morning and always wondered what it used to be.

We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Pollensa and whilst out walking we went past this building and not for the first time wondered about its origins and were pondering on how it could be restored. Cannot believe the question has been asked so soon after, hope it is restored.
