Son Marroig, Deia
(3.8/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Son Marroig and other attractions that appeal to you using our Deia itinerary planner.

  • We hike in the North West (Tiara) through the Sierra de Tramuntana, a Unesco World Heritage site, among old olive trees; We cross a Rainbow (which does not bring good weather). Stop a Son Marroig, boils down the wind on the beaches. We enter the ancient residence of the Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Habsburg-Lorraine, born in Florence at the Palazzo Pitti in 1847 noted for his scientific studies on the Mediterranean and for his great commitment to environmentalist. Her maternal grandparents were King Francis I of the two Sicilies and Maria Isabella of Spain. Was a cousin of Sissi. All this memory remains at his villa with garden and tempietto (romantic) as if he never left, with many, many, paintings on the walls (a few signs, it's good a guided tour). See also the old "tafona" (oil mill), the garden and the cloister built by Archduke with 13th-century Gothic arches. Very well.

  • Breathtaking views. Perfect to see the sunset, very well at any time. The light of the Sun by putting the views from this Mallorcan possession are worth.

  • 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, you want to the Pavilion must go through the building (Museum) and that of course entrance fee €4 per person. I know not what to do with the money happens. In the Museum is not invested in any case. The garden is beautifully landscaped. By the way, today was open on the Sunday 23.10.16.

  • It was worth a second visit! Unfortunately the Pavilion is now a fence locked and no longer accessible. Very nice property with garden and spectacular views as you can see in the photos.

  • Once made the two photos the regulatory thing deflates, need to improve a lot of things i could extend the visit. Is fine to go to see the sunset.

  • Very beautiful location in the mountains overlooking the Bay-Rock Sa Foradada. Looks wonderful white Rotonda among olive trees. It is a pity that there is no free access to the Rotunda, it is necessary to buy a ticket and visit to the Museum. This place is often used for celebrations and banquets, weddings in particular.
