Valldemossa: Ramon Llull and Archduke Ludwig Salvator

Puig de sa Moneda (1) is a peak crowned by a tower built in Arabic style, commissioned by Archduke Ludwig Salvator, who bought a large part of the coastal lands between Valldemossa and Deià. If you take the Ma-10 road, a track leads off it and climbs up to Santíssima Trinitat Hermitage (2), founded in the 17th century, following in the footsteps of Ramon Llull. This medieval philosopher was the first illustrious figure to come to Valldemossa when he founded a monastery and school of Oriental languages, in 1276, at Miramar (3), a house on which Archduke Ludwig Salvator would later also leave his imprint.
