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" through which the village began to form. The name of said noble was Mussa. Over the years, ValldeMussa would become the name of the town. This town is located on an incline and is made up 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 of Valldemos in which popular figures like Chopin and George Sand lived, where they created several of their works.
King James II was the one who selected this spot at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountain Range, more than 400 metres high to build a palace for his son Sancho. Currently, it belongs to Valldemosa. Don't miss out on the chance to visit it!
Ramon Llull lived for 4 years in this place, which became a school for monks who learned Arabic and Lullian art. Later, it became a printing press, famous for being the place where the first book was printed in Majorca.
If you take the MA-10 in the direction of Deià and Sóller, less than 2 miles away from the village, you will find the hermitage of the Holy Trinity, dated back to 1703 and founded by Joan Miro. This is a must-visit!
