The marina has been redesigned, the fishing fleet repositioned and the beach remodelled. The Jumeriah hotel is the pride of the area, it provides 120 luxurious suites with incomparable sea views, hanging over the cliff edge.
For centuries Soller has been Mallorca's fruit basket; its juicy oranges are exported worldwide. Thankfully, the fruit merchants came up with a brainwave - to build a railway from Soller to Palma! The result of this is one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Europe. This railway route became so famous that the quaint stationmaster's house has been transformed into a miniature art gallery featuring works by Picasso and Miro!
