For our last full day in Majorca, I really wanted to get out and see the northern part of the island. I had read great things about the various towns there – Valldemossa, Deia and Soller. Given our success with the public bus system the day before, why not give it another go? We had to choose ONE town though. Jake left it up to me… I left it up to the app I can’t live without: Coin Flip. Valldemossa it was!
For once, I was speechless, taking in the beauty of this tiny old town and plotting how to break it to Jake that we weren’t getting on the next bus home. (Or the next, or the next.) We ran all over that town for two hours, snap happy and choosing which house we’d buy in retirement. I settled on the first one below, for what its worth.
Really, no more to report on Valldemossa other than GO if you get the chance. Getting there from Palma is easy – just take the 210 bus from the Palma bus depot. (More tips on the public buses here.) Again, they don’t announce the stops on the buses, but you’ll know when you’ve arrived – the road climbs for a bit and then all the sudden you’ll see the entire town in the valley of the mountain. Some of the best views are from the bus as you enter and leave the city, so if possible, sit on the driver’s side on the way in and the opposite side on the way out. (I wish I had known and kicked myself the whole way home for not getting a few shots as we left!)
