Built originally as a royal residence Cartoixa de Valldemossa was converted into a monastery in 1399 and is now a museum. The monks left in 1835 as a result of a national decree authorizing the Spanish government to take over religious properties. The main church of this well-preserved monastery is still in use. You can tour the church, some of the monks’ former living quarters, library, dining room, old pharmacy, and garden.

  • For your 10 euro ticket, you get a lot in return. A fifteen minute Chopin piano recital (starts every half hour), the rooms of the royal palace, the rooms of the 14th century Carthusian monastery, the city museum, an art gallery, the cloister church, and the medical pharmacy. Visiting time 30min to 2h.
  • King's palace in a cute little village of Valdemossa. Unfortunately due to lack of time I haven't been inside the palace and the monastery but if you do, it offers a 15 mins piano concert for free. Also try the very famous 'potato cake' sold in almost all cafes in valdemossa😊
