Valldemossa is one of the most visited places on the island, where you can find the palace of King Sancho and the nearby Real Cartuja de Valldemossa where Frederic Chopin and his lover George Sand spent the winter of 1838, and were the subject of a famous book entitled A Winter in Mallorca. Concerts are celebrated each August to commemorate their visit.
The town is full of history and culture, and features the Costa Nord Foundation which is a spectacular documentary of the area, narrated and directed by Michael Douglas, who set up the Foundation. The documentary is followed by a light and sound show. Other cultural events take place at the Costa Nord. For details go to www.costanord.com. You may catch a glimpse of Michael Douglas and Catherine walking through the streets when they visit their nearby home. Valldemossa is also frequented by other A-list celebrities.
The main part of Valldemossa town is pedestrianised and lined with tree-shaded cafes, bars, restaurants and craft shops, many of which sell Chopin memorabilia.
There is also a Port of Valldemossa. It is only one and a half kilomtres away as the crow flies, but by the time you have negotiated the hairpin bends it is about 5 kilometres. If you suffer from a nervous disposition, and have a fear of heights and mad drivers ... give it a miss. If you want to ignore this advice, then there are a couple of bars and restaurants when you get there. There is a small harbour but no beach.
