Discover Valldemossa – Mallorca’s Mountain Village
The first thing I wanted to do when I went to Mallorca was to check out all the fantastic beaches (also called “Calas”) and swim in the crystal clear, turquoise water. Hardly did I know that this Spanish island had way more to offer!
One of my all-time favourite places on this island was the small mountain village Valldemossa. Situated right in the midst of the Tramuntana Mountains, Valldemossa attracts people with its cobble-stoned streets, cute shops, and stunning scenery. It’s definitely a place everyone should have on their Mallorca bucket list!

TIP: Before you go to Valldemossa, don’t forget your travel insurance to cover non-refundable travel expenses. I use the simple and flexible one from World Nomads to be protected against unforeseen events.
Where to Find Valldemossa And How to Get There
The lovely mountain village is easily reachable since it’s located only 20 kilometres from Palma, the capital city of Mallorca. That’s also the place where I stayed during my time on the island. To go to Valldemossa, I took the bus line 210 which cost me between €2 and €4.
The entire ride didn’t take longer than half an hour and I enjoyed watching the scenic landscape passing by very much. Of course, you can either take a car or a taxi as well. Both options will be faster, however taking a taxi will also be way more expensive.
How To Spend a Day in Valldemossa
After I finally arrived at my destination, the first question I asked myself was: What should I do in Valldemossa? Despite the fact, I hadn’t had any expectations before I went there, it became one of my favourite places in Mallorca.
What I enjoyed most about my trip to Valldemossa was the calm and relaxing atmosphere of the little town. While I was walking along the narrow streets, I almost felt transported back in the Middle Ages because all the buildings reminded me of old history movies. Honestly, it wouldn’t have surprised me if I’d seen knights sword fighting!
The quaint little town is also a perfect place to get yourself some really nice Majorcan clothes. Valldemossa is full of different kinds of small boutiques with the most beautiful and exquisite Spanish fashion pieces. Moreover, most of the stuff is pretty affordable too so you don’t need to spend a fortune buying some new dresses!
Even if you’re not really into shopping for clothes, there are so many other kinds of small shops. For example decoration shops, selling handmade Spanish statues, carpets and more!
Trust me, it was really hard for me not to hop in every single one I saw on my way through the village because I’m a sucker for all different kinds of little boutiques. Thus Valldemossa is definitely a heaven on Earth for that matter. Besides souvenir shops and boutiques, you can also find tons of great cafés and restaurants offering traditional Spanish cuisine there.
Thanks to its very convenient location right in the midst of the Tramuntana Mountains, Valldemossa is the perfect starting point for hiking or biking tours. In this way, you’ll see the beauty of Mallorca’s landscape in its full splendour!
Why You Should Visit This Place
Although Valldemossa is a rather small and quiet place, you should definitely check it out on your trip to Mallorca. The charming town is full of history and magical places. Its roots date back to the 5th millennium BC and that’s why it’s full of culture, traditions and spirituality.
Cobble-stoned streets, old churches, cute cafés and traditional restaurants make this fairy tale town truly worth a visit!
I really hope I made you a bit curious about Valldemossa. Hopefully, you consider adding it to your Mallorca itinerary and if you’ve been there already, how did you like it? 🙂
