The Sóller Railway.

On Majorca we have one of the most popular tourist attractions, this being the Soller railway and its unique 19th Century train.
This railway has connected the city of Palma de Mallorca with the small town of Sóller since 1912. The train travels through beautiful landscapes, and has completely retained its original character. The train is powered by an electric locomotive and is the only one of its type that is still in use today. It is particularly beautiful during the months of February and March when the almond trees are in blossom, and the orange and lemon trees are full of fruit.
On arriving into the town of Soller you can then take a tram journey down to the famous fishing port of Soller where you can admire the many boats whilst eating Paella (traditional rice dish).

I have been on the Soller train a few times now and it’s one of my favourite journeys.
Hope you like it as much as I did.
