The Serra de Tramuntana is one of the most thought provoking areas within Spanish geography. Humanity has not destroyed its nature, it has integrated within it creating a unique space in the world. The Serra will always have a cultural heritage given that many famous characters have formed part of its history such as the king Jaume I, Ramón Llull, the Archduke Luis Salvador or the marvellous couple formed by the artists Chopin and George Sand. That is why, UNESCO knew that they needed to value this wonder and declared it a world heritage site in 2011.
In continuation we are going to show you a route through the spectacular towns which are found in the Serra de Tramuntana so that you can enjoy a full day and finish it off in your favourite restaurant in Palma.
The gems of the Serra de Tramuntana: Valldemossa, Deià and Sóller
Valldemossa is a dream town with streets filled with stone houses and flower pots. This precious environment was the inspiration for famous writers such as Jovellanos, Santiago Rusiñol and Rubén Dario. This small town welcomed the composer Chopin and the writer George Sand. Don’t leave Valldemossa without trying the famous potato ‘coca’ in one of the small terrace bars.
