Valldemossa is the most searched destination by users who scour the internet looking for the best corners of Mallorca during their visit to the island. It is with good reason, throughout its history, its uniqueness and beauty have made many people fall in love with this village surrounded by mountains and find inspiration in it: Chopin (he composed ‘Preludes Op. 28’), George Sand (he wrote ‘A winter in Mallorca’), Ruben Dario, José Luís Borges, Jovellanos, the Archduke Louis Salvador, Ramón Llull (who created the first school of oriental languages there) or, more recently, the actor Michael Douglas.
Valldemossa is located right in the middle of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, an area declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The village stands out for its terrain, with typical Mallorcan stone houses that spread evenly across the mountains and where illustrious architectural elements predominate such as: the Sant Bartomeu church, the Royal Monastery or the Palace of King Sancho. It is also worth highlighting its centre, with pretty cobbled streets and Mallorcan stone façades decorated with flowerpots of colourful plants that fit in seamlessly with gardens and century-old trees.
As you will have been able to see, Valldemossa is history and natural beauty. So, we can’t forget that there you will also find the birthplace of St Catherine Thomas, a strongly admired character on the island, or other places worth a visit: the Miranda des Lledoners lookout point, the Royal Monastery of Valldemossa, the Frederic Chopin and George Sand Museum, the Palace of King Sancho, the Gardens of King Juan Carlos, the church of Sant Bartome, the Miramar Monastery....
In addition, as we do with our customers, we recommend you sit and soak up the atmosphere of the centre while you try the famous Valldemossa Coca de patata, a gastronomic jewel that can compete with the famous ensaimada or the almond cake with ice cream, both famous Mallorcan desserts.
Another option for the more active amongst you is to go on an excursion through the multiple routes offered by the village: the Comuna de Valldemossa, Puig del Teix, Camí de l’Arxiduc, Mirador de ses Puntes, Monasteri de Miramar...We advise you to check the duration and difficulty of the routes on www.visitvalldemossa.com where you will also find relevant information about the village: history, what to see and do, gastronomy, routes, accommodation, shops...
To finish, don’t miss the chance to enjoy the sunset in the Port of Valldemossa, one of the most idyllic pictures that you will take away as a reminder of your visit to Mallorca.
For those of you who are thinking of visiting Valldemossa, we remind you that it is forbidden to drive vehicles around its centre, so you will need to park your vehicle on the outskirts (be careful with the overcrowding in summer) or park in one of the blue zone parking spaces (€1 per hour). As always, at Futurtrans we make our fleet of different sized buses available to you, a much more comfortable and cheaper option so you only have to be concerned with enjoying the scenery.
