WALK AROUND THE PARISH OF SANT BARTOMEU

WALK AROUND THE PARISH OF SANT BARTOMEU

Going down Calle Uetam, -stage name (Mateu backwards) of the international lyrical singer (bass) Francesco Uetam, born in Palma, with strong roots in Valldemossa– you can observe under the shadow of horse-chestnut trees, the solid and austere modernist style buildings to one side of the street. Among the doorways, the Hotel Can Marió restaurant (1899) stands out, it has a traditional and family atmosphere, and has kept its old furniture and works of art from painters that stayed there over the years. Here you can sample typical dishes from Mallorcan cuisine, such as tumbet (a dish consisting of aubergines, courgette, red or green peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic), frit (a fried dish, either meat or fish, with assorted ingredients), pork and cabbage, stuffed squid, and other local delicacies.

Back on Calle Uetam again, on the right you can enjoy splendid views over the mountains that are represented on the municipal coat of arms; in the distance, the city of Palma, and on a clear day, you can see as far as the island of Cabrera. At the end of the street, in an enormous country house, you will find a charming little hotel, Es Petit Hotel. Keep walking and the street changes name, now becoming Calle de la Rosa.

Continue on and you can see a monolith that is a reminder of the one month stay in 1974 of the uncorrupted body of the  Beata, in order to be venerated by the residents and anyone that wanted to come to Valldemossa to worship her.

Without leaving Calle de la Rosa, at no.20, you will find the founding premises of Can Molinas which, as previously mentioned, owes its fame to the potato buns and Almond cake.
