Step into the world of one of Mallorca's most colorful residents at Son Marroig. The picturesque house was the home of the Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, a late 19th-century nobleman who decided to escape court life in Vienna and retreat to the scenic island, where he became one of Europe's first environmentalists. Perched on a hill overlooking the sea, the house now functions as a museum, where displays of the archduke's books, pictures, and personal items celebrate his life and work to preserve Mallorca's wildlife and traditions. Next to the house, you can enjoy a stroll through its colorful garden. The house also serves as a popular performance venue; concerts are held here throughout the year.

Son Marroig Reviews
Visited as it was a short distance from where we staying. Interesting old house with lots to look at. Reasonable admission charge more »
We arrived to find the place closed for lunch so instead we followed a path to the left of the property (climbed the fence) and walked 3km down to a gorgeous restaurant completely unrelated however... more »
Picturesque spot. We were there as a wedding preparation was taking place so were lucky the monument was not barricaded. Definitely a unique location to visit.
Fantastic Paella. Worth the hour long walk to get down there for the views and the food. Lovely staff too.
