The Puget Museum is installed in a noble house of Dalt Vila, in the old main street, popularly known as Can Comasema, for being the Palou family of Comasema, of Mallorcan origin, who lived there during the 19th century. Probably, the oldest part of the house dates from the 15th century.
The appearance of the shield of a family of Catalan origin, the Francolí, on the capitals of some pilasters in the courtyard suggests that the building is probably a factory. The entire property is imbued with the Gothic style of Catalan influence. The main façade of the building is oriented to the south and is of “plastered” facing, very sober. The noble door is of semicircular art with dongles and the upper part is enclosed with a large window with three semicircular arches of the very elegant layout.
Among the decorative elements, we find Gothic ornaments and capitals of the vegetable theme. The building of Puget Museum currently houses the collection of 130 paintings by Narcís Puget Riquer and Narcís Puget Viñas, donated to the State by the family. These are oil paintings and watercolours of local style, which collect landscapes and scenes of daily life in Ibiza from the beginning and the middle of the 20th century.
In 2003, the City Council of Ibiza ceded to the Can Comasema Ministry of Culture to make a public exhibition possible permanently. The Puget Museum opened its doors on April 30, 2007.
