Typical in Sóller

Soller was for centuries Mallorca's fruit basket; its juicy oranges exported across the world. There was just one problem: the difficulty of transporting the oranges across the rugged terrain to the capital city and major export port of Palma. Thankfully, the fruit merchants came up with a brainwave - build a railway from Soller to Palma! The result of this is one of the most spectacularly beautiful railway journeys in Europe. So famous is this journey by train that the quaint station master's house has been transformed into a miniature art gallery featuring works by Picasso and Miro!

How to get to Soller

Apart from the spectacular train journey from Palma, Soller is easy to reach by car and bus. There is a direct major road from Palma (the Ma-11) which tunnels through the mountains, taking about 30 minutes. There is also a longer, more scenic road via the Ma-11a which hairpins over the mountains in a most attractive manner. Buses run regularly from the capital city of Palma.

Situated some 3 Km. inland, from its port, 'Port de Sóller', the town lies in a large, fertile, soller valley. Sóller shares its valley with the village of Fornalutx and the hamlet of Biniaraix, the combined population is around 12,000, and the valley is famous for its orange groves and terraces of ancient olive trees. The village of Deià is just down the coast. Sóller and the port are about 20 mintes drive from Palma de Majorca , and have good connections with railway, tram and bus services. The valley and its surrounding mountain range, the 'Serra de Tramuntana', is a favourite destination for people from all over the world, especially those who enjoy walking, nature, ecotourism, swimming or simply a peaceful rest away from the hustle and bustle of the better-known tourist traps.

Puerto Sóller has been steadily undergoing improvements to the seafront and with the opening of a by-pass tunnel is virtually traffic free apart from the 1912, wooden sided tram which runs from Sóller town to the port. The marina has been redesigned, the fishing fleet repositioned and the beach remodelled. The Jumeriah hotel project has stalled temporarily but when complete will provide 120 suites with incomparable sea views, hanging over the cliff edge.
