Son Marroig, Deia

History Museum
Step into the world of one of Mallorca's most colorful residents at Son Marroig. The picturesque house was the home of the Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, a late 19th-century nobleman who decided to escape court life in Vienna and retreat to the scenic island, where he became one of Europe's first environmentalists. Perched on a hill overlooking the sea, the house now functions as a museum, where displays of the archduke's books, pictures, and personal items celebrate his life and work to preserve Mallorca's wildlife and traditions. Next to the house, you can enjoy a stroll through its colorful garden. The house also serves as a popular performance venue; concerts are held here throughout the year.

  • Very peaceful location - it was lovely. High on the hillside and a small walled cemetery which was quiet and calm. Beautiful resting place.  more »
  • 4 euro for entry. The highlight is really the grounds and the view of the amazing coast from back of the property. Simple breathtaking. Definitely an amazing place to have a destination wedding if any...  more »

  • Impressive 200 degree view and a possibility to watch sunset. The nature of the place is very chilled out. Take a drink in a nearby restaurant and just enjoy the place, the moment, the atmosphere.
  • Nice place with breathtaking views!
  • A tourist! Too expensive for what it is, everyone pays even children from 12 years old. The Palace is beautiful but all the interesting places are closed: the terraces, the dome on the sea: everything is inaccessible! Too bad, the old gentleman not very nice at the entrance is just right of the business on our backs. Too bad!

  • Very nice both inside and out. The story of Archduke Ludwig Salvator, his life and love in Mallorca (and a girl from Mallorca!) is fantastic. He was a very special man. Great place to take visitors to.

  • Formerly nice place influenced by greed. Would be the entry for the preservation of the site where at least Empress Elisabeth often resided on your good friend Ludwig Salvador in summer. Could you get the place. 2 stars anyway for the look.
