Epic Trip Part Four: Valldemossa and Palma de Mallorca, Spain
Our very knowledgable guide took us through many of the rooms in the monastery, telling us the history of the place, and mentioning that it had been a refuge for Frederic Chopin and Clara Schumann one winter.
This picture was taken in the monastery chapel which was opulent and gorgeous.

We were told that the famous refreshment in Valledemossa was hot chocolate and potato roll. It didn't sound very appealing; we were picturing some sort of hashed browns, I guess. But our guide had been terrific and he seemed earnest and we decided to go for it.
And we were very glad that we did. The roll was astonishingly light -- it had been made from potato flour. The chocolate was thick and rich.
We liked it.
