Set in the hills 30 minutes from Palma de Mallorca is the island's most beautiful town, Valldemosa. With the walking tour, you will experience attractive small shops and cafes and the Monastery Complex, which houses valuable memorabilia of Chopin and George Sand.
The biggest issue with this tour was that the Ship had sent about six busloads of people to this tiny monastery at the same time...all trying to wedge into several monk's cells at once. It was simply a mess. The tour groups were right on each other's heels all the way, so the guides were talking over one another. It would have been interesting to actually see the cells where Chopin and George Sands stayed for 55 days, and appreciate the manuscripts on display and the artwork in each room, but it was simply too overcrowded to enjoy.

Wonderful town that celebrates the most notable visitor, Chopin, who wrote may of his works right there. You can attend a short concerto of his works while you visit the museum. Beautiful town that is rich with heritage and interesting stories when you have a personal guide.
