This excursion runs through the mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana, where some of the most beautiful villages and farmhouses you will ever see are hidden, places full of magic, resisting unchanged the passage of centuries, and its privileged location facing the sea, sculpts a fairytale scenario.
Valldemossa is rich in springs and is surrounded by abundant and lush vegetation (ancient olive trees, oaks and almond trees, etc.), so it offers visitors the feeling of calm and quiet secular. Its narrow and steep streets have a special charm. Also noteworthy for its location is the parish church, originally from the thirteenth century, although extensively renovated in the eighteenth century.
The main attraction of Valldemossa has been and is, without a doubt, the monastery of the Carthusian monastery, rooms in which the pioneers of French romanticism of the mid-nineteenth century, the famous Polish composer Frédéric Chopin and his companion, the writer Aurora Dupin, better known by her alias, George Sand, stayed. The traces of their brief, though intense, stay have since given rise to an incessant pilgrimage.
Valldemossa retains the charm of yesteryear and its cobbled streets full of flower pots, gardens and viewpoints, hide stories of princes, saints, aristocrats, artists and monks, which we will tell while we enjoy the views.
A place that makes visitors fall in love, it has recently been one of the locations chosen for filming the television series "La Caza. Tramuntana" or "The Mallorca files".
And at the end of the visit, treat yourself with the local specialty and try a potato coca with a hot chocolate or an almond granita. The perfect end to an unforgettable visit.
