Sóller is known for its valley of oranges and citrus groves, which brought the area great fortune in the 19th century. Back then, Sóller was isolated from the rest of Mallorca. Hence, local merchants would ship their citrus fruits to France through Port de Sóller, resulting in new wealth, country estates and modernist architecture which is still present today. A wooden train connecting Sóller with Palma opened in 1912. Today, it is one of the most attractive tourist experiences in Mallorca.
