Ferrocarril de Sóller, Plaça d'Espanya, Sóller, Spain
The narrow-gauge railway, Ferrocarril de Soller has been running since 1912 and was funded by the profits from Soller’s orange and lemon trade. Not far from the station you’ll find Soller’s main square, the Placa de la Constituticio, which is packed with bars and restaurants.
During the main tourist season the train makes the journey from Palma seven times a day but between November and February this is reduced to just five trips a day. It passes through dramatic countryside in the Serra de Alfabia, negotiating tunnels, bridges and viaducts.
There’s a spectacular view of the Soller valley at the Mirador Pujol de’n Banya, which is reached after emerging from a three-kilometre tunnel. Often the train will stop at this point, providing the opportunity for some breathtaking photographs.
On its way to Soller the train passes through orange and lemon groves, arriving at a station housed in a 17th century mansion. The station has two rooms featuring the work of Picasso and Miro – the Sala Picasso and the Sala Miro.
