Exploring Valldemossa. Majorca/Mallorca

Nested in Majorca’s/Mallorca’s Tramuntana Mountains is Valldemossa which claims to be Spain’s most prettiest village. 

A 20 minute drive from Palma de Mallorca, luckily we visited during in 2020 when holiday travel was permitted only within Spain during the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s a popular tourist destination for its most prettiest village claim, Choplin who spend time there and it’s Arabic influence from the Moors, so it gets busy quickly. Minus the international tourists it felt more comfortable to look around. Get there early though as there was a car park queue when leaving. 

The views from the village are amazing, with the village itself filled with terracotta pots, geraniums, crafts shops, boutiques, ice cream parlours and cafes. It doesn’t take long to walk around, maybe an hour. Make sure to explore off the main paths (please be respectful of the locals!) as that’s where gems are to be found! 

The hidden terrace at Can Molinas. Sparrows know this is the spot for snacks!

Exploring when I probably shouldn’t. At the time of visiting there were quite a few abandoned buildings such as this one, although I think it was it was beginning to be restored.

Thank you for stopping by!
