Son Marroig, Deia
Categories: History Museums, Museums
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.
