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.
Moving forward on the street called Carrer de Catalina Homar, on your left-hand side you will see the old public washhouse of Valldemossa, a so-called lavoir. Imagine now, a group of women under the arches washing clothes while laughing and chit-chatting.
Next to the washing house, you see the old medieval village cross cut in stone. 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.
