#2 of 6 in Things to do in Deia
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.

  • The Archduke Ludwig Salvator of the House of Habsburg is a historical personality very estimated in front of us, we visit his former estate of Son Marroig again. On the one hand, it's always nice to see how the memory of a nonconformist people is upheld, on the other hand, we find appalling the visible decline. Loveless, the writings of Archduke in the showcases are draped, so the exhibits bleach and make donkey ears. You can see also unfortunately not new. (An exhibition at Valldemossa in the autumn of 2017 in the Charterhouse proved that it is certainly better and more beautiful.) Lack of explanations and remarks. The small house is also no longer accessible, unfortunately not apparent why. The sight makes one fear bad. One of our favorite places in Mallorca seems to be the descending branch. House and garden but intensively worked, that makes us hope for the future.

  • Place located on the cliffs of the coast but completely decadent and unable to see everything. Loa neglected gardens, poor lighting. Should the owners be a reflection to give life to all of this. The unique are the view and the pergola of marble.

  • We stop at the mirador de Na Foranada, and also entered in this excellent mansion. A beautiful Palace which has a splendid garden and above all a wonderful view of the coast and the sea. It is impressive to have been able to enjoy this place.
