Valldemossa

This small, picturesque town in the mountains is arguably where Mallorcan tourism began one cold winter in 1838, when the composer Frédéric Chopin and his lover, the female writer George Sand, rented some rooms at the former monastery here. Shunned by locals, the couple had a miserable time, as portrayed in Sand’s book A Winter in Majorca. However, Mallorcans today are proud of their Chopin-Sand connection, and the book is sold in every tourist shop.prac_infoMonastery and Museum Apr–Sep: 9:30am–6:30pm; Oct, Nov, Feb & Mar: 9:30am–5pm; Jan & Dec: 9am–3pm • 971 612106 (museum) • Adm €8.50 adults; €4 children (10–14 years; under-10s free)
