Travel Tips for Valldemosa

Discover a wonderfull town inside the mountains

by russian_yaz

The village of Valldemossa is located 17 km from Palma, in the middle of the valley of Sierra de Tramuntana, around 400 metres above sea level. Part of the village goes up into the mountain slope, creating steep streets and beautiful natural miradors. All the town is surrounded by lush forests, with olive and almond trees that are irrigated by the abundant springs in the area.

The Carthusian Monastery, the most emblematic monument of this town, is a must see for every visitor. This ancient monastery, used to be the residence of Jaime II. It housed Carthusian priests between 1399 and 1835. Its important historic legacy, as well as mementoes from two remarkable visitors: Frederic Chopin and George Sand, are preserved in cloisters, cells, gardens and museums. These mementoes include scores, pieces of writing, fittings and correspondence related to their stay in the island, in addition to the "Pleyel" piano. In memory of the outstanding polish composer, concerts are celebrated in the cloister and in the gardens of the Carthusian Monastery during the summer.

From Valldemossa, U can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Sierra Tramuntana, or go to the nearby towns of Deià, Sóller, Banyalbufar, or Santa Maria del Camí. Olive, almond and orange trees grow among the ancient, Majorcan stone houses.

The blue and green doors and windows of the houses contrast with the stone of which they are made. Take your time and walk trogh the town. It will take U no more than 2 or 3 hours. Be prepared to climb up and down stairs.

This is an old house on the top a one of the mountains. It was used as shelter for people walking around and the park keepers

On one of the mountains there is a small hermitage. Is is sometimes occupied by people wanting to be away from the noisy world, to do thier prayers. The hermitage is called "Gilluerm hermitage" because the first hermit to live here was called Guillermo, two hundred years ago...the place is just a small cave, adapted to live inside it.

As U can see in the pic, inside there is a small altar with candles, icons and small statues of diffent saints.

A sofa and a bed are necessary also to rest

A view from outside, U can see the windows covering some holes so the rain cannot get inside and also it gives some light

This is the highest point near Valldemossa. The Valldemossa Atalaya, 834 meters high if I´m not wrong.
