Island Adventures Part II

My Island adventures continues and after spending a few rainy days at home I am back on the road ready to visit my next location. The town is called Valldemossa. It is famous for one landmark: the Royal Charterhouse of Valldemossa, built at the beginning of the 14th century, when the mystic and philosopher Ramon Llull lived in this area of Majorca. The monastery of Valldemossa is popular for its famous guests-poet Rubén Darío, composer Frédéric Chopin and his lover, composer Joseph Horovitz with his wife, etc.

It is a magical town, bringing you back in time, quite crowded with tourists but with some tiny cute streets with interesting souvenir shops and loads of flower gardens. The views are again Amazing!

Next stop was a place called El Mirador de la Victoria. Simply Stunning. The weather was cloudy, but that kind of contributed to the dramatic atmosphere. The road to get there was put it mildly ‘scary’, but again it was all worth it.
