The museum is interesting giving you a look back into the history of the monks, the interior and design to the monastery takes you back in time with its well kept rooms and long white hall ways. Like a lot of reviews on here yes it is the view from the gardens that make this trip so good. Just incredible,... More

We had purchased tickets to see the room that Chopin and Georges Sands had occupied during their stay at the Monastery. To gain accees to the room, which unfortunately we were unable to do as it was unaccountably roped off, we had to walk through a portion of the monastery. This afforded us with a good view of the garden... More

The museum itself is nice. Not thrilling, but nice. Learn a little about the monks and their way of life, and while at it you can watch some contemporary art. It's a given 3 out of 5. But there are gardens outside the museum that have beautiful views of the valley, and they bump it up to 4 out of... More

We rented a mini van for 15 of us to travel around. The drive uphill was amazing as we could catch glimpses of the village from afar at each curves of the narrow road. Much like an isolated civilization on the mountain top. Upon reaching this old rustic village, it was slightly pass noon but the weather was still slightly... More

We went up here as part of an included tour from our cruise ship. The village is very quaint and the Kloster has a lot of very deep history. The views were stunning and even with my small amount of spanish language, I was able to read some of the descriptions-but very little is in English if that's a must... More

Wanted to see Valldemosa. Went on the Tib bus, only 3.70€, better than an organised tour as I could do things at my own pace. What a pretty village! The monastery was very interesting but another cost to go into Chopins living quarters was a it cheeky. A little concert of his works was pleasant. Recommended for grownups!

Nice, picturesque village on terraces with vine, fruit trees, vegetables. You can enter through the church or from the side. You will walk to the cloister and move from one small cell to another. Cells are not special, even local museum is nothing to spend a lot of time. A huge surprise are gardens near the each cell. Flowers, trees,... More

Yes it's another old buildings and old village but this place is wonderful. The rooms are very small but worth a look you it can be crowded because of the big groups but it still worth a visit.

Visited at 5pm in November so the Charterhouse was almost empty. Chopin and George Sands had a difficult time here and we could sympathise. Fascinating place. It felt both oppressive and cold, ornate but austere. The library and apothocary feel like the monks are still there (they were expelled in the 19th century). Chopins room is closed to the public...
