Valldemossa is a mountain village in the Sierra Tramontana. It is situated 425m high. Only 20 minutes distance from Palma. In the past Valldemossa started to be well-known because travellers were hosted in its Carthusian monastery. Frèdèric Chopin and Gorge Sand stayed in a cell by the time they came in 1838/39.

Description

The town of Valldemossa is only around a 15-20 minutes drive from Palma de Mallorca into the Tramuntana mountains, but feels almost as if a whole world away from the capital. Perched on a hilltop, surrounded by terraced terrain, Valldemossa was named after the area’s original Moorish landowner, Muza. With its car-free cobbled alleys and rich cultural heritage, the town is a treat to visit.
On this live-streamed, interactive Online Experience, we will walk through the narrow streets decorated with beautiful pots with plants and flowers. Most of the houses maintain their typical stone façade with Mallorquin blind. I will also take you around the Carthusian monastery, where the famous composer Frédéric Chopin stayed with George Sand during their visit to the town in 1838. You will also learn more about how history has shaped the town: Valldemossa is the birthplace of Santa Catalina Tomàs, a peasant girl born in 1531 who became a nun in Palma and was renowned for her humility; you will see her images appearing everywhere in the village.

Walking around, I will also help you get familiar with the present of the town, such as with an excursion to the fine local handcrafts shops and fashion shops. Finally, you will get to learn more about typical local fare, including almond shake or hot chocolate with potato biscuit, which Valldemossa is known for.
