Sóller has the advantage of being located on the north coast of Majorca, with high temperatures during summer, but with a warm breeze which makes the heat more bearable. This is where the name Tramuntana Mountains comes from, from the wind of the Tramuntana which tends to blow in this area of Majorca.
Regardless of the outdoor temperature, the crystal clear waters of this area are ideal for enjoying your holiday in Majorca. The water’s temperature in spring starts to increase until it reaches 26ºC in summer.
One of the most well-known activities in Sóller is the train and tram. From the centre of Palma, Plaza España to be exact, a train departs which goes to the heart of Sóller, and from that same point, the tram which will take you to the Port of Sóller departs.
This train was inaugurated officially in 1912. What was the reason for this train? The need to connect Sóller with Palma, because the Alfabia Mountain made this town of Majorca isolated, and getting to the capital was difficult.
A year later the first electric tram in Majorca was inaugurated in the same place. In this case the tram connected, and still does today, the town of Sóller with its beautiful port. Some of the trams come from Lisbon and they needed to be adapted to the width of the track in Sóller.
Currently the Sóller train makes different stops throughout its journey from Palma to Sóller, and viceversa. Having left Palma, and starting to go into the Tramuntana Mountainsm, it makes one of the most special stops in the Alfabia Gardens. It is one of the oldest fincas in Majorca, which nowadays, you can visit and has differenet gardens which cannot be missed.
