Son Marroig, Deia

(3.9/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • 沿着山间高速公路走了半个小时才到的目的地 但是真得太美了 太美 太美 不过如果没车继续要看好来回的路线,因为公交站是不一样的  more »
  • The House is gorgeous with the Archduke, ceramics, pictures, documents, and Majorcan furniture collections. The gardens with ornamental plants that make the unique place, and tell of the carrara marble Bandstand which currently hosts weddings and other events.

  • The former Villa is home to a small but very interesting Museum, in which all kinds of exhibits are presented very lovingly. The small garden and of course the fabulous views of the small temple made of white marble are unique. Who dares to wanders 300hm from the Museum to the House around a goat gate and down to the small peninsula that CA. The absolute highlight of our whole vacation!

  • 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.
