Point of Interest
“A wonderful, romantic, old fashioned way of enjoying the trip to Palma from Soller. You can take the tram from Soller to Palma, or from Soller to the Port of Soller or even from one end of the Port to the other. A must see!”

Train Station
“The town of Sóller in the west of Mallorca became wealthy because of the valley’s abundant citrus groves. In the 19th century, when the area was isolated from the rest of Mallorca by mountains, the oranges were shipped to France from the nearby west coast Port de Sóller . Many locals went to work in France and returned – their fortunes duly made – to build some of the handsome Modernista properties that grace this town today. The opening of the Sóller road tunnel means that the town now has good access to the rest of Mallorca; an alternative is the snaking mountain pass (not for those who suffer from vertigo). Take the popular excursion to Sóller, on the old wooden train, leaving from its quaint station in Palma’s Plaza de España. The 28 km journey is on a narrow-gauge line opened in 1911, for the transportation of fruit to Palma. It’s a very picturesque journey once you’ve left the suburbs of Palma behind. On arrival in Sóller, you’ll find numerous bars and cafés in the main square, in the shadow of the imposing church of Sant Bartomeu. Art lovers should visit Can Prunera – a beautifully restored Art Nouveau building housing an excellent collection of art, with work by artists including Kandinksy, Picasso, Warhol, and local artists Miquel Barceló and Francesca Martí. On the main road on the outskirts of the town – a short walk away – is the Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences Museu Balear de Ciències Naturals and the Jardí Botànic, a sectioned garden where you’ll find many species of Balearic plants. A frequent tram service rattles along through citrus groves between the town and Port de Sóller. The port underwent considerable refurbishment in recent years – in advance of the opening of the 5-star Jumeirah Port Sóller Hotel & Spa in 2012. Port de Sóller offers many restaurants, spanning all tastes and budgets, and has the sandy Platja d’en Repic beach. Safe for children, it proved to be dangerous for the Moors who famously fought a battle here with the Christians in 1561. The event is commemorated with a noisy re-enactment during the second week of May’s Festa de Nostra Senyora de la Victòria.”
