Mallorca - Port de Soller, Deia, Valldemossa...

After walking around the town of Soller (

Mallorca - Serra de Tramuntana, Soller

), we arrived in Port de Soller.

Previously, it was possible to get there only along pretty dangerous road, and now, there is a small tunnel, where you have to pay 5 Euros (but there are just a few minutes to go through it)...
And the train from Soller also comes here.
This event should be photographed))). Cyclists think so...
Attention! Information for drivers - there are many cyclists in the mountains, and on the road in general. Sometimes, their style of driving is really annoying, hum (((... Just be ready...

The seaside town is very nice - there is a waterfront with many cafes and hotels.

The beach also looks quite good.

Is this the Mermaid?)))

And we are going further.
Towards Deia.

The road along the coast is beautiful, but it's almost impossible to stop and take pictures - there are no observation decks and the traffic is constant, if there are no cars, there are cyclists...

We didn't manage to find a parking lot near the center in Deia, and we didn't want to climb up the hill from the parking lot at the bottom...
And we've already been there for a couple of times.
But the town is nice - if you have the opportunity and time, you should stop there)...
Here's the town from the side.

The town is interesting, because the British poet, novelist, and critic Robert Graves used to live here. And he wrote here "I, Claudius".
And hippies, various painters, artists, and other Bohemia also used to live here... and they live here now))).
And we are going further again...

Pay attention - a lot of fruits here are grown on terraces.

It's easier to find the parking lot in 

Valldemossa

, and the town itself is bigger.

This town attracts tourists with the fact that in 1839-1840, one pair of sweethearts was living here - George Sand and Frederic Chopin. The story is quite touching, except for the fact that the writer described people of the town in her book "A Winter in 

Mallorca

" not in the best words, hum (((... But todays people take it in good part))). Therefore, you can buy this book in different languages in every souvenir shop)...
Oh, Chopin has such a polished nose)))

There is the Chopin museum in the monastery, but we were there once, so we did not go again this time. And there is nothing special to look at, IMHO.
But the garden near the monastery is nice...

There's only one saint on the island - Catalina Thomas, who was born in this town, so you can see such pictures on many houses...
