Valldemossa: probable the most romantic village from Majorca

Valldemossa (located in Spain, on the island of Majorca) is an old village surrounded by mountains, with beautiful houses made of stone and several restaurants where you can sit and watch the day go by.

Valldemossa is famous for one landmark: the Royal Charterhouse of Jesus of Nazareth, built at the beginning of the 14th century, when the mystic and philosopher Ramon Llull lived in this area of Majorca. In the 1830s the Spanish government confiscated monasteries, and the historic estate was sold to private owners, who have since hosted some prominent guests. These have included the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin and the French writer and pioneering feminist George Sand (who wrote a notable account of A Winter in Majorca, describing their 1838–39 visit and praising the island's natural beauty but criticizing what she perceived as the prejudice and vices of the natives).

The town of Valldemossa is also known for its crafts which consist of forging, ceramics and lots of hand-crafted embroidery. Many shops offer their unique handicrafts for sale.

The great beauty of its location with all houses made of stone, terraced hillsides, pretty little seaport and historic Carthusian Monastery where Chopin and George Sand once had an affair makes for an interesting visit to Valldemossa on the Island of Mallorca.
