"Sóller" Sóller by mindcrime

Sóller Travel Guide: 44 reviews and 143 photos

Sóller is a small town at NW of Mallorca island, about 28km from Palma de Mallorca.

It’s a ideal for a daytrip from Palma especially if you combine it with a side trip to Port de Soller (4km from Soller) with the nostalgic old tram. Villages Fornalutx and Biniaraix that also located in the valley may also worth a visit but unfortunately we didn’t have time for them but we were impressed by a couple we met that told us that they visited all of them on foot. Of course the general area is a paradise for those who like hiking, mountain biking etc

Sóller has about 14,000 inhabitants. The city lies on a green (very fertile) valley but you can see that it’s surrounded by the hills of Serra de Tramuntana, actually you can see Puig Major, Mallorca’s highest mountain at 1443meter. The valley of Soller is famous of many orange, lemon and citrus trees, no surprise so many places in Soller offer fresh orange juice. The citrus trade with France brough lots of money during 19th century

Most visitors take the old wooden train from Palma, it goes (slowly) up the mountain through several tunnels before Soller. On your way back you can use a bus, its faster (and cheaper).

We had a car so we reached Soller by car, we parked in the town, we walked a bit around, checked the main sites around placa de la Constitution and then we took the tram down to the port.

    The Orange Express recalled me the "Limón Express", very similar (yellow wagons), that travelled on the narrow gauge line from Alicante to Denia. Far nicer than the modern tram!
