"Robert Graves’ inspiration" Deyá by mindcrime
Deyá Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 54 photos
Deya (or Deia) is another lovely small village on the mountains of Mallorca island, about 25km from Palma de Mallorca.
It’s located on Sierra de Tramuntana between Valldemossa and Soller, two other interesting villages of the area. The road between is very scenic for driving but we also saw lots of people hiking on the side paths or cycling.
We came from Valldemossa but we just stopped in Deya for some pictures and continued to Soller without walking up the steep streets of Deya but I know it’s a favorite village for those that look for something different in Mallorca away from the crowded beaches. The village is developed with cafes, restaurants and pubs and some hotel rooms.
The lovely town seems very relaxing and definitely picturesque with all these stone houses and the idyllic surrounded landscape full of olive and almond trees, citrus orchards and an incredible rocky backdrop with the mountain falling into the ocean (one of the reasons I love WN part of Mallorca). Actually I regret it we didn’t stop because later I’ve read of how many people love this place, many famous ones also lived here like the English poet Robert Graves(1895-1985) that came here in 1930 and used Deya many times in his stories. In our days you can visit his house that is a small museum.
-Visit the Esglesia de Sant Joan Baptista that also houses a small religious museum
-visit the town’s cemetery where Robert Graves was buried
-climb to the top of Es Puig for a great view over the village
-visit Casa Robert Graves, once his house now a museum
-visit Museu Arquologic I Centre d’Investigacio de Deia
