Once you have left your bags at the hotel, it is time to explore some of the places of interest in Valldemossa and walk through its beautiful cobbled streets with their matching houses. A few meters away, walking you will find the Church of San Bartolomé. This 13th-century church bears the name of the patron saint of Valldemossa, San Bartoloméincluding, which is the same but in Majorcan, Sant Bartomeu. This Gothic-style parish church with a neoclassical bell tower is open to its parishioners and the general public. You can enter during the day to contemplate its white vault, its rose window and its paintings. Although modest, this church is most beautiful and forms the center of the town. In fact, before arriving, you will see its dome from the road. A most idyllic picture.
In front of the Church of San Bartolomé, you will find the birthplace of Blessed Santa Catalina Thomás, patron saint of Valldemossa, born in the 16th century. It does not have visiting hours since it has been converted into a chapel in honor of her and some gates protect it. Known as la beateta, Santa Catalina Thomás is the most revered saint in Mallorca as she was the first Mallorcan saint. Her remains remain intact in the Convent of Santa Magdalena, in Palma, where she entered at the age of 21. Several miracles are attributed to her, including the appearance of saints and the experimentation of the greatest ecstasy in history (21 days). Thus, she was beatified in 1792 and sanctified in 1930.
After visiting the house of "la beateta", we can continue enjoying the cobbled streets, and the plants that adorn the houses and reach the Mirador de Sa Miranda des Lledoner. From there you can see spectacular views and, if you feel like it, sit in a bar, cafeteria or restaurant.
You will find throughout the town of Valldemossa these typical tiles with the inscription "Santa Catalina Thomàs, pray for us" that the townspeople place on the doors of their houses to get the protection of their beloved saint.
After having breakfast at the fantastic hotel that we have selected for you, you will be able to visit the monumental complex of the Cartuja de Valldemossa. With its green dome, it has been a refuge for great artists and personalities. Pianist Frédéric Chopin spent his last days here, in one of the Carthusian cells, where he composed some of his works and where his piano is still kept.
In the complex,best-preserve you can enjoy the Palacio del Rey Sancho and the concert hall, where since 1932 it has been exhibited where the musician himself played. In fact, throughout the morning, there are several piano performances, included in the ticket that we have reserved for you. In addition, the ticket also includes a visit to the Church of the Charterhouse, the old monastic pharmacy, belonging to the (Carthusian) monks, the Frédéric Chopin and George Sand, and the Valldemossa Municipal Museum, divided into four sections: an exhibition of the old Guasp printing press, one of the best-preserved in Europe, and a collection of 1,590 xylographic matrices from the 16th to 19th centuries; a room for the Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria; a room of works by painters who were inspired by this part of the island, the Serra de Tramuntana and, finally, a collection of Contemporary Art. To end the visit, nothing better than strolling through the Gardens of the Kin Juan Carlos and sitting down to rest. If you are looking for a place to eat, both at the Sa Miranda viewpoint, Vía Blanquerna and Calle Uetam, you will find a wide variety of options. This town is small so everything is very close, it is a matter of walking and sitting in the place you like the most.
You can spend the afternoon t doing some shopping in the little shops that you will find along the promenade or simply We recommend strollingandstrolling and enjoyingbest-preserved a good terrace. But, of course, you cannot leave without trying the famous coca de patata, traditional from Valldemossa. We recommendenjoying that you sit down for a quiet snack and order this sweet bun with a cup of hot chocolate.
Frédéric Chopin composed during his stay at the Charterhouse, Preludes Op.28, while her partner, George Sand -Amandine's pseudonym- wrote the internationally famous book A winter in Mallorca. The prologue was written by Robert Graves, a British writer and resident of the neighboring town of Deià. Without a doubt, Valldemossa was a great inspiration for the pianist and the novelist if we take into account that they only enjoyed the Mallorcan paradise for 95 days.
On this third day, you will discover the beautiful town of Deià, another municipality of the Serra de Tramuntana worth seeing. This little town was also the favorite of many painters and artists in the 60s and 70s. The novelist Robert Graves, one of the first lovers of Deià, is buried in the cemetery. This cemetery is a place of pilgrimage, not only for the followers of the British writer but also for its wonderful views of the sea and its location on one of the highest points in this town. On your day in Deià, you can't miss a visit to the parish church of San Juan Bautista, with free admission and open every day, and the viewpoint of the canyons, with some spectacular views of the Tramuntana. Of course, spend time sitting in a cafeteria and enjoying nature. If you go between April and October, from the Camino des Racó, you will see a waterfall that emerges from between the mountains.
The Archduke Luis Salvador was in love with Valldemossa and Deià who acquired and restored several estates and possessions in the Sierra de Tramuntana. His love for Mallorca was so great that he protected natural environments, created viewpoints, trails and mountain routes, which are preserved today. Its wonderful Son Marroig mansion, located in Deià, and its Miramar monastery, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea, have been places of visit for such important figures as the Empress Sissi. They say that Sissi was so impressed that she called her imperial yacht "Miramar" in memory of her summer in Mallorca.
In the morning, we will transfer you to Palma from Valldemossa so that you can discover this city full of life and history. The first recommendation is that you go see the Cathedral of Santa María, known by Majorcans as la Seu. Declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1931, the cathedral of Mallorca is located in a privileged location, facing the sea, and is of incomparable beauty, not only because it has the largest rose window in the Gothic world, but also because of its built structure in three naves and its huge gates, which do not lack detail.
Under the cathedral, you can walk through the Parc de la Mar, a park with a large saltwater lake. This park is the epicenter of a wide variety of events and concerts and is located in front of the medieval walls that surround the entire area. At the foot of the cathedral, next to the Parc de la Mar, there is also s'Hort des Rei, a small garden with a Muslim arch and a pond from which various fountains emerge along the length, reminiscent of to the gardens of the Generalife of the Alhambra but in miniature. In these gardens you can take the opportunity to sit down to rest or take photos. Of course, don't miss the lake that is located between the walls and that is home to two swans, much loved by the people of Palma and, above all, by the children. If it's time to eat, we recommend that you Do it in the area of La Lonja where there are a wide variety of restaurants along its small streets and take the opportunity to visit the civil Gothic building of La Lonja, built due to the great commercial activity that took place in the port of Palma. Here merchants met and trade agreements and banking operations were carried out. It currently hosts temporary exhibitions and admission is free. It is closed at noon, so if you want to visit it, it is better to do it in the morning or in the afternoon. To end the afternoon, nothing better than strolling through the Borne and shopping at Jaime III , the urban center par excellence of the Majorcans. There you will also find many cafes and bars as well as a Spanish department store. If you feel like having a typical snack, we recommend that you order a llonguet. It is a type of sandwich made with a typical roll from the city of Palma. In fact, people from Palma are called “llonguets” and the sandwich made with this bread is known as “llagosta”, lobster in Majorcan. That's because they say it's hotter than that crustacean. The favorite of most Majorcans is the llonguet or sobrassada lobster, although there are all kinds of them: cheese, Serrano ham, squid, Majorcan fried... and the most emblematic place to eat them is in the mythical Barc Bosch, open since 1936. If you have time, you can lose yourself in the surrounding streets or continue shopping on Calle San Miguel. Another option is to visit Plaza de Cort, where Palma City Hall is located.
To finish, a vehicle will pick you up to take you back to Valldemossa.
Palma Cathedral is also known as the Cathedral of Light. The reason is that, twice a year, through the entrance of the sun, the circle of colors of the larger rose window is reflected just below the smaller rose window, forming a huge eight of light on the wall of the temple. It is what is known in Mallorca as "el vuit de la Seu" (the eight of the Seo). This phenomenon occurs on February 2 and November 11 between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. and lasts only a few minutes as the circle rotates like clock hands until it disappears. It is easy to remember: 2/2 and 11/11. In addition, it coincides with the festival of Candelaria and San Martín, respectively. Quite a spectacle that very few have the privilege of contemplating and that never fails.
Last day of the holidays… We recommend that you get up early, have breakfast at the hotel and enjoy the privileged environment in which you find yourself. Then, if you have time, take the opportunity to walk around your favourite places in Valldemossa or to do some last shopping.
Finally, we will pick you up to take you and your companions to Palma airport Good flight home!
