Valldemossa is one of the prettiest villages in Mallorca. In the hills of the Tramuntana range, and being about 17 km from Palma makes Valldemossa an excellent place to base yourself for cycling in Mallorca.

Surrounded by forested hills and lush countryside, it is popular with outdoor enthusiasts as well as cyclists.

With a population of around 2,000, Valldemossa is a quiet and traditional town with narrow streets, and lanes and house constructed with blonde stone. Each doorway and street is lined with green plants and flowers.

The main landmark that everyone comes to see is the 13th century monastery which has links to the Polish composer Frederic Chopin.

Stay in Valldemossa for a Majorca cycling holiday if you are in a party of non-cyclists - there is lots to do for them also.
