  • Being on the island of Majorca is really worth to the formidable playing technique-the highest situated town on the island. The road itself is picturesque, and then there is just better. The whole town looks as though time stopped in it (impression spoil only parked cars). Beautiful, narrow, cobbled streets, flowers, wooden shutters and a unique atmosphere. The wonderful views of the mountains. Very interesting the Fryderyk Chopin Museum and monastery (best visited with a guide, because you can really know a lot). In the town you can also try delicious regional liquors (and possibly a few purchase) and a very sweet (but delicious) drink almond-Horchata.

  • We were here in august and went around the city, mega cozy place and friendly people who help when you ask .... Took a bus from palma to Valldemossa, really nice place, you can spend many hours there, beautiful vistas and remember the camera is small but nice mega city:), one feels that one goes back in time ..... When you are in Mallorca and just wanted to see beautiful country and mountains and just enjoy the view, then you should visit Valldemossa:)
