Valldemossa hermitage

You leave Valldemossa by the Deià highway and, close to Can Costa, turn right and climb – best on foot (about twenty minutes going up, but not so long to come down) – to the Valldemossa hermitage. At the hermitage, you will recall the stay of writer George Sand, pseudonym of Aurore Lucille Dupin (Paris, 1804 – Nohant, France, 1876). A Romantic novelist, she undertook a journey to Mallorca in November 1838 with Frédéric Chopin. They initially stayed in Son Vent de Establiments and, later, in La Charterhouse of Valldemossa, until on 13th February 1839, they decided to leave the island. In 1841 she published Un hiver À Majorque, a polemic work which, apart from describing the Mallorcan landscape, explains the discomfort, disappointments and annoyances they underwent, confronted directly with the inhabitants of Valldemossa.
