Valldemossa, Santa Caterina Thomàs and Chopin

It was in Valldemossa where Chopin and his lover George Sand spent their renowned "A Winter in Mallorca". Although they were not very pleased with the residents' manners, what was put on record by Sand in her book, Valldemosa has turned into a pilgrimage destination for thousands of visitors looking for the Chopin experience at La Cartuja. You can visit the room where he lived, and you can see the piano he left when he returned to France and some original scores.

Chopin might be the benefactor of this marvellous town between the sea and the mountains, but Sor Catalina Thomàs is its spiritual guide. Locals worship this saint and icons of her can be seen in all the houses.

In summer Costa Nord, property of Michael Douglas, offers many outstanding concerts with first-class groups.

If you feel like going for a dip, Cala de Valldemossa is a beautiful cove just 7 km away where you can enjoy a swim.
