The visit to the Royal Monastery of Valldemossa includes the church, of neoclassic style and with frescoes by Fray Manuel Bayeu (brother of Francisco Bayeu, brother in law of Goya), the pharmacy, with a collection of 135 ceramic Catalan jars from the seventeenth and eighteenth century, the Priory Cell, the Chopin and George Sand Museum, the Municipal Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Palace of King Sancho. This palace was once the royal residence and the first house of the Carthusian monks in 1399.

Of the original monastery it preserves, among other elements, the access stairway, the cloister and the tower of defense. In 1801 it hosted the Spanish writer and enlightenment politician Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos, banished to Mallorca this year and liberated in 1808 while imprisoned in the Castillo de Bellver in Palma. In the music room of the palace, decorated with frescoes and fabrics by Ricardo Anckermann, concerts are held with prominent young pianists who interpret pieces by Frédéric Chopin.
