Valldemossa Monastry & Museum

United States

More about us...

The ex Carthusian Monastry has hosted many writers, artists and musicians, most notably during the winter of 1838-39, when both the composer Chopin and writer George Sand were in residence. Chopin composed and George Sand wrote “A Winter in Mallorca”, which turned out to be a rather unflattering representation of it’s residents!
The Municipal Museum of Valldemossa is interestingly full of personal artefacts, many items, such as letters, paintings etc. belonging to the famous and infamous who stayed here.
