With just under 700 inhabitants, about 10 percent of whom are German, Deià is not only one of the smallest towns on Mallorca, but also one of the most beautiful on the entire island. Not without reason have many artists settled here since the beginning of the 20th century, including famous painters and actors such as Pablo Picasso, Michael Douglas and Pierce Brosnan. The village is located on the northwest coast, in the Serra de Tramuntana, and is only three quarters of an hour from the island's capital Palma and barely 20 to 25 minutes from popular places such as Valldemossa and Port de Sóller. A residential area in the Serra de Tramuntana, Deià is also part of the landscape designated as a World Heritage Site, representing the successful interplay between nature, culture and traditions. In the town itself, the Son Marroig Museum, the pretty church of Sant Joan Bautista and the Robert Graves Museum, the latter the former home of the famous writer Robert Graves, are all well worth a visit. It is worth strolling through the town and admiring the old, lovingly restored stone houses that stand in the narrow streets. Foodies will love the small, central grocery shop Es Forn, packed with local produce and gourmet products. There are a few small, interesting boutiques, art galleries and shops in the village and plenty of options for food and drink - including the Michelin-starred Es Racó d'Es Teix.
