What to see in Valldemosa


Located in the western part of Majorca, it is believed that the town is named after the person who built one of the first "farms" from which the village began to develop around. The name of the developer was Mussa. Over the years, ValldeMussa (the valley of Mussa) would become the name of the town. This town is situated with in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains and is adorned by a number of narrow streets. It also features a church dating back to the 13th century, which was completely renovated in the 16th century. Its main charm is the Carthusian Monastery where famous composer Chopin and his wife George Sand lived and inspired a number of their works.
