History & Culture of Deia

The Casa Robert Graves – home of the writer who penned such classics as I, Claudius – is open to the public and is still very much how Graves left it. If you climb the Carrer Es Puig, the only real street in the village, you’ll reach the Esglesia de Sant Joan Baptista and the cemetery where Graves and his second wife, Beryl, are buried.

Close by at Es Clot is the Archaeological Museum of Deia, founded by William Waldren. Its exhibits include the skeleton of a goat from the Cenozoic era.

The village has a host of handicraft shops and art galleries and, as a millionaire’s hideaway and an inspiration for writers and artists, it lives up to its celebrity status with a number of top-notch eateries.
