6. Mallorca: Carthusian Monastery Valldemossa Entrance Ticket
Visit the Carthusian Monastery of Valldemossa, located only a short drive away from Palma. See the 14th-century palace of a king and a beautiful church with frescos of Bayeu, the brother in law of Goya.
Walk down a long, white-arched corridor leading to different cells that the monks inhabited for 400 years to find peace and rest. Wander through the beautiful gardens and terraces with some of the most astonishing views of the valley.
Look inside an old pharmacy with its ancient pots and medicines. Peruse the second most important private collection in the world of Chopin and George Sand, with original manuscripts, play scores, personal artifacts, and paintings that recall their stay here in 1838.
Browse an art collection of some of the greatest modern Spanish and local artists, including Miró, who also found inspiration in this part of the island. Explore another incredible collection of the Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, cousin of Empress Sissi, who came to Mallorca with his steamship and fell in love with this part of the island.
Don't miss the 15-minute piano recitals that take place every day at 10:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 12:30 PM, 1:15 PM, and 2:15 PM.
