From Cala d’Or you have to head towards Palma on the Autovía de Llevant motorway, and exit it towards "Andratx/Port d’Alcúdia". Afterwards take exit "5B" towards "Valldemossa", and this is where you make your first stop, after which you go to the nearby village of Deià, along a well-kept but winding mountain road with impressive views. The trip can take around 1 hour 45 minutes. 91 Km each way.
What to do:
"Deià" is a wonderful village set in the mountains. It is worth taking a relaxed stroll to contemplate its meticulously well-kept streets and spectacular panoramic views. There are delicious cafés, restaurants with views and art and craft shops, and also the museum-house of the famous writer, "Robert Graves", (who is buried in the tiny, beautiful village cemetery). In "Valldemossa", the delightful mountain village that was the residence of Chopin and George Sand, one can visit the Carthusian monastery - "Sa Cartoixa" - and try the delicious "coca de patata", perfect with hot chocolate or coffee in the colder months of the year. Both Deià and Valldemossa are the starting point for numerous excursions around the beautiful "Serra de Tramuntana" mountain range, declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Between Valldemossa and Deià lies the spectacular viewing platform of "Sa Foradada" (literally, "the perforated one"), one of those seascapes that will forever remain imprinted on your retina, and even more so if you visit it at sunset.
