  • Interesting little museum in Valldemossa. It is divided into several smaller areas each with their own focus, and the employees of the museum help you to find your way around. The museum ticket also gives you access to a short piano concert. Many of the exhibitions prohibit photography. Last but not least, you can get a student discount.
  • Hidden gem almost all the mountainous areas surrounding the area. Very interesting history and some great artifacts. Well worth the visit!
  • A truly wonderful and beautiful place of culture and history with a stunning garden one of my favourite places to be.
  • All the information is in Spanish. The concert of Chopin plays was awful: the musician played it very quickly even when the tempo was not so quick according tovthe script, without no musical shades. Then a man in the yard against the concert hall turned on music through his phone very loudly: it seriously distracted from visiting the palace. It was totally awful. I don't recommend visiting the palace and concert.
  • We followed the signs to the monastery and paid the exorbitant €9.50 each to get in. The monastery was a real disappointment. It was whitewashed inside and this had faded to a worn grey, like a 3 year old tshirt. There were some nice frescoes on the ceiling of the church but other than that it was almost puritan. The cloisters were no better, more whitewash and austere stonework which seemed very strange for an 18th century building. The museum area was more interesting with the original 18th century apothacary on display, a section on the life and works of Prince Louis Salvador (I think) who was an Austrian that fell in love with the islands and wrote numerous books about them, some Balearic art and some woodcuts. There was also a Chopin Museum (an extra €4 I think) that we didn't visit and a small garden terrace. The church/Chopin area and garden were pretty packed with tour groups but the museum section was empty. We then wandered across to the Palace of King Sancho, included in the price, and listened to part of a Chopin recital whilst walking through the furnished rooms and reading about some of the residents.
