Cartuja de Valldemossa (Valldemossa Charterhouse)

This charterhouse in the village of the same name became famous when George Sand and Chopin stayed here during the winter of 1838-1839. On one side of the cloisters, the 18C pharmacy holds a fine collection of jars and boxes. The cells occupied by George Sand and Chopin offer lovely views across the surrounding carob, olive and almond tree plantations that surround the village. A small museum houses a collection of xylographic wood engravings. Chopin Festival in August.
