Valdemossa, Palma de Mallorca: 6 reviews and 8 photos

by miromi

The north end of the island is a lot more mountainous and rainy and full of beautiful towns built on steep hillsides. The most famous of these is the town of Valdemossa, where Chopin and George Sand lived for a winter to help Chopin with his health problems. Unfortunately they didn't count on unheated rooms, and George Sand kept a diary that chronicles a disastrous year. These little towns on the north are today more affluent and less trashy than the mass marketing tourist highrises on the south end of the island, but they are still overrun with tourists. Hanging out in Valdemossa is a pretty experience, and you can just have fun wandering down the twisty stone streets and having coffee in the small cafés full of German tourists. It would be nice to see the Spanish part of this town. But i'm not sure if Spanish people actually live here...
