18TH C.

Part of Rialto Living occupies the Baroque-style ‘palacio’ that was once the 18th-century home of Irish military doctor John O’Ryan, who came to Mallorca to flee from the persecution of Catholics in his homeland. Here he married Francisca Flor i d’Alemany, daughter of a wealthy local businessman, and set up home in the property which became known as Can O’Ryan.


Rialto Living’s home was once the Rialto Cinema, one of Palma’s most emblematic and historical picture houses. The first screening here was on April 3rd, 1926, when the audience watched the silent comedy movie El principe encantador. The cinema showed many cinema classics, until it closed its doors in 2002 – five years before the property reopened as Rialto Living.


Klas Käll (one of the three founders and designers of the global Gant brand) and Barbara Bergman opened their Rialto Living lifestyle concept store in one of Palma’s previous cultural centres. They sympathetically converted the former Sala Rialto theatre and cinema to launch it as one of Europe’s most exciting lifestyle store.


Rialto Living doubled in size from its original 800sqm, following its expansion into Can O’Ryan. When the owners bought the property in 2012 it hadn’t been renovated since 1911. Their 21st century renovation included the restoration of some of the original architectural features of this Baroque-style property, creating a superb setting for their enlarged range of departments and products.
