Villages of Valldemossa and Soller
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. 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 SeaDream yacht.
