Here you are standing in the fork of Carrer des Canonge/Carrereta Vella, back turned to Carrer des Canonge. On your right-hand side, on the corner, you see the house with the big green shutters. This house belonged to Catalina Homar, secretary (maybe lover) of the famous Archduke Louis Salvador of Austria.
Turn to your left, take a few steps, and on your left-hand side, you will see the old public washhouse of Valldemossa. Imagine now, a group of women under the arches washing clothes while laughing and talking.
Next to the washing house, you see the old village cross. The cross was built in the early 18th century, and was meant to mark the borders of the village. However, Valldemossa grew dramatically and the cross was soon absorbed by the many houses.
