Entry to the palace was included in the tour of the Monastery which we hadn't expected. The furniture and surroundings are very interesting and extremely lavish which I guess you should expect when it was the summer palace of King Santo. There are only a few rooms open to the public but nevertheless this gives you a taste of how... More

Entry to the Palace comes as part of the ticket for the adjacent monastery, but it would seem that most tourists (perhaps because they have been bussed in and are on a tight schedule) do not visit. This is a serious omission! The furnishings a opulent and interesting, and the rooms on view should not be rushed. Furthermore if you... More

Much to our children's disgust we hired a car and drove up the MA-10. It can be very bendy in places so a bit stop start. Luckily we'd taken a packed lunch as the restaurant where we stopped was closed on a Thursday! The sea views were spectacular but only appeared now and again so not the best drive we've... More

It's a nice mansion and well decorated for the King . They said it's a palace but it's very simple to be a palace . the entrance fee is included in our tour ( Majorca island tour) . The place has got nice garden and very nice village .

Nothing much to see here at Valldemossa. Entrance fee €8.50 and additional €4.00 if you want to visit Chopin's room and garden. Little museum and exhibition to know a bit about the town with calm and peaceful green environment.

It was an interesting building and exhibition, livened up by a very good 15 minute Chopin concert. This could be fitted in nicely with a monastery tour - either before, after or both - 2 concerts!

Right beside the monastery. An easy walk through and viewing. Photos permitted. Well-preserved and maintained. Interesting historical perspective. Some areas not accessible (bedrooms). Worth the time especially just before closing when there's less people.
