Soller is an attractive town on Majorca´s north-west coast. It is situated in a bowl-shaped valley surrounding by the mountains ``Serra de Tramuntana´´. The port of Sóller is three kilometres away from the town.

On the main square there is the Saint Bartolome´s church. It is surrounded by restaurants and cafes and it has beautiful trees. It has old paved narrow streets. One of them leads to the railway station. Another road leads to the port where you can go by tramway or by car. You can also go to the charming villages of Fornalutx and Biniaraix.

Soller is famous for its oranges and lemon groves and terraces of ancient olives trees. Winter here looks like spring because everything is green and beautiful contrasting with the yellow and orange colours of the trees laden with fruit.
Soller became prosperous thanks to emigrants who came back rich from France and to its textile industry. Its people are very hospitable. In fact nobody close their doors.

An ideal place far from the hustle an bustle of other tourists places. You can enjoy walking as there are many paths in the mountains. For those who want to enjoy sunbathing and the beach the port of Soóller is the best place with regular tramway service.

I have wonderful memories of spending e days in Sóller, on the beach. It is a good way to escape from the busy and noisy city.
