Most of the people who had an opportunity to explore the whole island of Mallorca, note that Valldemossa is one of its finest and most beautiful cities. It is worth noting that some of the celebrities spend their holidays exceptionally in Valldemossa and even own some property there. Moreover it was Valldemossa where Chopin and famous George Sand lived for a certain period of time. One of the most popular landmarks of Valldemossa is the Royal Charterhouse.
It is believed that it is the place where Ramon Llull, legendary philosopher and mystic, lived. The whole building dates back to the 14th century and represents great interest for history devotees. Normally any private tour in Spain includes visiting this remarkable place. There were some other notable figures, who were also captivated by the beauty and charm of Valldemossa – Ruben Dario, a well-known Nicaraguan poet, and Jorge Luis Borges, a Spanish writer. As regards the Valldemossa Charterhouse, at first it was aimed to serve as a royal residence, but soon it was converted into a monastery for the local Carthusian order. As your private guide in Palma da Majorca I will tell you some of the most interesting stories linked to the monastery.
Currently it is a museum, and most of the private guides in Spain strongly advice their tourists to visit it. Valldemossa became universally known due to the promotion of the distinguished cultural writer and traveler – Ludwig Salvator. Fans and connoisseurs of classical music, and Chopin in particular, will have a unique opportunity to take a look at the piano of the legendary musician, which is displaced in the monastery. Valldemossa is truly a remarkable place, so no wonder so many poets and writers mentioned it in their poems and novels, and sometimes dedicated their works to this small but undoubtedly captivating village.
