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.

  • Must-see is the House of the Archduke. This year, we were, like every year since makes eight already, but with some friends of our daughter. We do not tire of delight in the spectacle of the views and sunsets. And also, we do not tire to share it with others and to get to know wonderful! Was not ready the Archduke or anything to find enclave of his summer mansion
