Son Marroig, Deia

#2 of 6 in Things to do in Deia
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.

  • 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.
