Valldemossa: Monastery and the village of Valldemossa

Jesus of Nazareth Charterhouse, also known as Valldemossa Carthusian Monastery, was an important religious centre. After the property was confiscated from the Church, it became a place of rest. Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos, Chopin and George Sand, and Rubén Darío are some of its best-known guests. Visits can be made to the monastery and to King Sancho’s Palace, the early part of the monastery building. The municipal gardens, which stand on the site of the main cloister, contain sculptures of the village’s illustrious visitors. When you leave the village along Camí de Son Mossènyer, you reach a mill called Molí de la Beata and Font de na Llambies spring. 

 This mountain village can best be discovered by walking down toward the parish church and to Carrer de la Rectoria and the highly revered home and birthplace of Saint Catalina Thomàs. Further down is a fountain called Font de la Beata, in commemoration of this Mallorcan peasant saint. As you leave the village, it is easy to see how Valldemossa gradually grew up along the banks of streams carrying water from local springs.  

The GR 221 dry-stone route does not pass through the municipality of Valldemossa. You can find all the updated information about this hiking route at https://caminsdepedra.conselldemallorca.cat/ruta-pedra-en-sec-gr-221
