Valldemossa is a old village in the mountains. Here you find a monastery where the composer Chopin lived the winter 1838/39. The houses are constructed of stone. It is a cool place and in the winter you get snow from time to time. It is well worth visiting this place, walk the streets and visit the museum. La Beata is the saint protecting the village. All the houses have a small ceramic plate at the main entrance saying: Beata, pray for us!
