Valldemossa is only 18 km away from Palma (tour of 3 or 4 hours will be perfect)

This itinerary takes visitors around the streets, plazas and most picturesque spots in the village of Valldemossa, an introduction to the places that witnessed French writer George Sand and Polish composer Frederick Chopin’s stay on Mallorca.

The celebrated couple resided in this Mallorcan village during the winter of 1838-39. Its landscapes, peoples and customs made a strong impression on the writer, who would set them down years later in a book entitled ‘A Winter in Mallorca(1841).

During their visit, the couple stayed in cells at the Royal Carthusian Monastery, admission to which is not included in the tour.

If you like philosophy joing this tour to find out the old four enigmas of the Middle Age. The four colours of each enigma (white, green, red and yellow) how those colours are costantly present surrounding us in most of the monuments and houses when we walk.

What’s the meaning of the green shuttles of the windows in Mallorcan houses. Do you know why Hope is always in green colour or why the martyrs always dressed in red in Christian iconography? In this excursion  you can discover how the colours and the numbers are linked whit the circle of life of the humans or the nature.

The tour will take us through a city that looks towards the sea. You will be walking on the oldest streets through the most important part of this charming city. You’ll be imagining how  was the type of life of people dedicated to diferent activities ( merchants, jewish, noblety, pirates ,corsairs…) in each of the four separated quarters 700 years ago. Those endogamic groups left us a very rich heritage that we admire today.

The walking tour last 2h about.
