In Soller, examples of stunning art can be found in the Ca’n Prunera, a modernist mansion which is now a museum of modernism - saluting the work of Miro and Picasso, plus Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Klimt, Man Ray and Cezanne. It’s one of Mallorca’s most significant galleries and it also has a section devoted to native Soller painter, Juli Ramis.
Ca’n Prunera also has a display of dolls and a garden. There is a collection of flowers and plants native to the Balearic Islands in the Jardi Botanic. Admission to this garden also includes the Museu Balear de Ciencies, a natural science museum offering an insight into the plant life found in the Balearics, along with an impressive fossil collection.
The steeple of the striking Esglesia de Sant Bartomeu is visible all over Soller. The church was built between 1688 and 1723 and was given a Modernist facade by Joan Rubio, whose influence can also be seen in the nearby Banco de Soller.
Soller’s location in the Serra de Tramuntana also makes it an ideal starting point for some spectacular walks and hikes.
Port de Soller
The Museum of the Sea is well worth a visit, reflecting Port de Soller’s maritime heritage with a large number of exhibits of appeal to adults and children alike.
The Esglesia de Sant Ramon de Penyafort and Esglesia de Santa Caterina are very pleasing to the eye, whilst a walk to the 17th century Torre Picada, once a watch tower, will reveal excellent views of Port de Soller and the surrounding countryside.
