  • The environment is beautiful. Positive point for the app that you can download and is equivalent to an audioguide for museums. Interesting stories from the pharmacy, Jovellanos and Chopin, I think overrated for the brief stay on the island, although it was very interesting that the girl who took care of the room tell us references related to the collection. Us or came to see other £ 4 musician piano and little else. Although is private, does not understand that batiburrilo of exhibitions...

  • The visit starts with the Church and continues around the cloister opening onto various doors including the old pharmacy. Further, in a long corridor, the rooms offer a beautiful view of the Valley. We discover a library sewn from old books, several are of the XVII. Then there are the apartments have stayed Chopin and George Sand, who failed to love or be loved the mallorcains. She wrote a book on his experience: a winter in Mallorca. They kept the piano which Chopin played. Then comes a very nice collection of paintings of a prince who lived in the Cartuja. Do not miss the collection of modern paintings on the second floor: Miro is in the spotlight. The tour continues in another building with a 20-minute piano concerto, Chopin obviously... and visiting places where the Royal family was staying.

  • Much history, much work and many things to see, with a "an uproar" museology that confused a little. Many people watching rooms them, and speaking of belongings and little information to visitors (though there is an app that takes a long time to download) of Chopin is seen just enough, or a supplement is paid. However, it is a beautiful place and they have a huge collection of Miro and other artists of the 20th century. In addition to the oldest works of the place.

  • Beautiful church that represents a picturesque village of Mallorca which the tourist can not miss.
