Add To Plan

Visit Valldemossa, one of the most beautiful and traditional villages on the island, which is nestled in a valley within the northern mountain range, a short distance from Palma.

From the port, the coach will head towards La Cartuja, an ancient monastery that was originally built as a royal hunting lodge and was later inhabited by Carthusian monks. The monks were expelled in 1835, the venue was privatized, and the monks' quarters became lodging for travelers. During the winter of 1838, the famous Polish composer Frederick Chopin and the French writer Georges Sand lived in this monastery. There is a collection of furniture, including a piano where Chopin composed some of his masterpieces. George Sand later wrote a book "A Winter in Majorca," which tells of time spent on the island. Other interesting sites are a small chapel, a Middle Age pharmacy, and the monk's library. The King Sancho's Palace will also be visited. You will enjoy a 10-minute piano concert before free time for shopping and exploration in Valldemossa on your own.

Lunch will be served in a restaurant before continuing on to Soller. One of the main attractions in Soller is the church, which was built in 1912 by architect Juan Rubio I Bellver, a pupil of the famed Antoni Gaudi. Your trip will be highlighted by a return journey to Palma in the electric Soller Train. This is a very scenic, one-hour ride on an old-fashioned electric train, which still uses wooden cars. The ride will take you through 13 tunnels over a distance of approximately 17 miles, traveling amidst some breath-taking landscapes. Back in Palma, the coach will take you back to your ship.

Important Notes: Guests must be able to walk approximately 2 miles over uneven and cobbled surfaces with slight inclines and 10 to 20 steps. Tour itinerary may be altered in order to avoid congestion at the venues or depending upon the availability of the train. The travel time to/from the pier is approximately 30 minutes each way, dependent upon traffic conditions.
