The structure of the house has Roman-Andalusian roots. We find features and elements of different styles: Arabic, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Roman, Rococo and even English in the decoration of the rooms.

The main facade, created by Joan d’Aragó, an important baroque architect of mid eighteenth century, is flanked by two “colcadors” or stone mounting-blocks. Its large portal (portal forà), whose doors are sheathed in bronze, has on each side two elliptical windows called “ojo de buey” (ox-eye) and is set off by two columns and a lovely baroque frame of reddish local stone.

The coffered ceiling, the work of Almohad craftsmen, was built in 1170. It is worked in pine and holm-oak, with inlays forming beautiful and typical arabesques. On the lower part are inlaid the coats-of-arms of the Arabic families who lived on the estate, and next to those of the Moor Ben-Abet of the thirteenth century, the bars of the Kingdom of Aragon superimposed. In the frieze reads “Allah is great. Allah’s is the power. There is no other God but Allah”.

The existent residence is reached crossing the patio (clastra), paved according to Mallorcan tradition and graced with a fountain and an immense plane tree. Attention should be given to a Gothic window belonging to the former residence and the basket-handle arch that crows the hall, very frequent in the Mallorcan architecture.

Time has left traces of each era in the house, while the whole complex maintains its balance. In this sense, the development of the house of Alfabia is a model of respect for the past and evolution, of conservation and innovation.

Inside, we can highlight the ground floor, where the rooms are more extensively furnished, which include the “Sala Gran” with painted scenes of the port of Palma and other towns; the “Sala de l’Alcova”, whose walls are covered with yellow damask, above painting of rural scenes; the “Sala de la Cadira” with numerous illustrations, musical instruments, neoclassical busts; and the dining room, result of the reforms of the nineteenth century with painted scenes on wood and painted cloth walls hangings.
