Photo Gallery » Valldemossa Mallorca

Valldemossa is a small village located in a valley in the Sierra Tramuntana mountains just 17 km from the capital of the island - Palma de Mallorca. It is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Mallorca. It is worth walking through the streets surrounded by stone houses that have been standing here for hundreds of years. Fryderyk Chopin and writer George Sand (Aurore Dudevant) spent the winter of 1838/39 in Valldemossa living in the Carthusian Monastery. Now you can visit the museum with souvenirs of these famous artists.

It is worth to park the car in a side road and go to see this panorama - unfortunately the road is narrow and quite busy - you have to be very careful. There are large paid parking lots in the city center. If you are going to spend more time here or go trekking in the mountains as we do, you can also try to park the car a little further from the center for free eg in the vicinity of the police station.

The village is not big and it can be visited within an hour or two, but it has many interesting places and it is worth entering various side streets ...

Walking along the streets is a real pleasure especially for photography enthusiasts - all you need to do is get off the main streets and the crowd of tourists disappears. There are many charming places.

A trekking trail to Deia

Valldemossa is located in the central part of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range and it is worth going to the mountains after visiting the town. You can follow the main route of Majorca GR 221 south to Esporles or north to Deia. We followed another trail leading to the peak of Puig Caragoli (945 m) towards Deia. I marked the entrance to the trail on the map at Carrer Oliveres street.
