Once you have left your bags at the hotel, you can take the opportunity to explore some of the places of interest in Valldemossa and walk through its beautiful cobbled streets with their matching little houses.
A few meters away, about a 5-minute walk down Constitución Street, you will find the Church of San Bartolomé. This 13th-century church bears the name of the patron saint of Valldemossa, San Bartolomé, 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 the beateta, we can continue enjoying the cobbled streets, and the plants that adorn the houses and get to 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 breakfast, you can 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, 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 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 finish, a walk through the gardens of King Juan Carlos and sit down to rest. If you are looking for a place to eat or dine, both at the Sa Miranda viewpoint, as well as at Vía Blanquerna and Calle Uetam, you will find a wide variety of options. This town is small so everything is very close, it's a matter of walking and sitting in the place you like the most.
In the afternoon, you can spend some time shopping in the little shops that you will find along the promenade or simply for a walk or enjoy a good terrace. But, of course, you cannot leave without trying the famous coca de patata, traditional from Valldemossa. We recommend that you sit down for a quiet snack and order this sweet bun with a cup of hot chocolate. This is how the locals in the area have it and it is already known that "wherever you go, try what you see''.
And if you want to take some typical sweet back home, like the iconic Mallorcan ensaïmada, we recommend that you order it today so that tomorrow you can take it home freshly made. There is a wide variety of ensaïmadas, from the simplest or “smooth” ones, so-called because they have no filling, to those filled with pastry cream, whipped cream, angel hair and, for those with a sweet tooth, chocolate… Choose the one that best suits you. you like it although we already told you that they are all delicious.
Coca de patata is a typical sweet bun from the town of Valldemossa. It is usually accompanied with hot chocolate on colder days and with horchata or almond ice cream on hot days.
This last day, if you have time -since it depends on your flight schedule-, you can take the opportunity to see the Valldemossa market, which only takes place on Sunday mornings. This market is located in the Valldemossa parking lot. There you will find vegetable and fruit stalls, plants, clothes and shoes.
Finally, we will pick you up at the hotel to transfer you and your companions to Palma airport. We are sure that, although brief, this weekend will have been worth it. Have a nice trip back!
