Valldemossa

We’re exploring some mountain towns today starting with the gorgeous flower festooned village of Valldemossa.

There are a multitude of ornate hand painted tiles that grace almost every house. celebrating the only home grown saint on the Island – Catherine of Palma – who was a Spanish nun, born in Valldemossa and canonised in 1930.

Winding our way up through the village we come to a spectacular viewpoint over the surrounding countryside.

From here you can see the parish church of Valldemossa, Església de Sant Bartomeu.

As well as stunning views and quaint streets, Valldemossa is also one of the most floral villages we’ve ever visited. Every wall, window and walkway is a veritable cornucopia of greenery.

This wall of simple terracotta pits filled with shades of pink geraniums is just divine!

And this alleyway has to take the prize doe being one of the most wonderful urban planting schemes ever!

Around every corner is a new plant species to delight the eye and plant garden seeds in my brain…

Valldemossa is definitely worth a visit – pretty, traditional and a gardener’s delight.
