  • Nice village in the mountains good for a half day trip to cool down from the beach. Historic houses, churches and public places. We went seeing Chopin room in the monastery and enjoyed his garden and the view
  • Frédéric Chopin memorial in Valldemossa
  • Nice place
  • Extremely expensive, it does not worth at all. Same price as National Museum of the Prado, general ticket admittance is €9.5 + €4 Chopin, total €13.5. Much better to enjoy the village and surrounding areas, the landscape, and the mountain and coastline villages are fre of charge. Do not enter. Why pay the same thing that makes no sense for an entrance to the National Museum of the Prado. They are €9.5 + €4 Chopin, total €13.5. Better take advantage of the time visiting the town and the surrounding area of mountain and coast.
