Palma highlights, the train & Valldemossa
Railway trip in Palma de Majorca
Tour Price : upon request Duration : 5 hours Languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian
This private tour in Spain differs a bit from all the other ones, as far as we will use a vintage means of transportation – a train. The train is indeed vintage; it has nothing to do with the modern common ones. The rail cars look retro and are decorated with brass fittings and mahogany panels. In fact it is unique, because there is no other place where such trains are used. You will be stunned by the views! As far as the train will ride to the mountains you can imagine what beautiful landscapes you will be able to see. After we reach our destination, we proceed to an ordinary tourist bus.
Any private guide in Palma de Majorca would recommend you to visit Valldemossa. You will learn from your private guide in Spain that it is a very picturesque village, where lots of celebrities lived. Surprisingly but all the celebrities were influential art figures: writers, musicians, and artists. George Sand was absolutely captivated by the incredible landscapes of Valldemossa. Frederic Chopin also spent much time in the village, and you can still find his piano standing in one of the churches. Jorge Luis Borges was another writer charmed by this small but remarkable village. One of the most popular landmarks of Valldemossa is the Charterhouse.
You should know that this edifice was built to serve as a royal residence, but due to some reasons soon it was converted into a monastery of the mysterious Carthusian order. Currently it is a museum, which consists of the major church, an old pharmacy, the former library, numerous cells and monks’ rooms, dining room and a beautiful garden. It is worth noting that Valldemossa became universally known as an outstanding place thanks to the well-known cultural writer and traveler – Ludwig Salvator.
