A pleasure trip through Sóller

A pleasure trip through Sóller

Come to Sóller now!

Sóller is not only famous for its oranges, which are ripe in January. The village embedded in the Tramuntana scores with Jugendstil-architecture, pleasant shopping facilities and lovely inhabitants. Reason enough to come and visit the golden valley, which the moors called “suliar”, now that the tunnel from/to Palma is free of charge.

Diving into the lingering scent of orange blossoms

Before you reach the very centre of orange-village, you can pop into the eco plantation Huerto de sa Vinyassa. A Mallorcan couple is cultivating some 2.000 lemon and orange trees there, lined up all around a more than 100-year old dwelling. On winding paths, you can walk through the idyllic nature all around, with some of the trees being real curiosities that have been standing here for 85 years, others were added, to present a complete collection of varieties to the visitors. At the end of the tour you get offered freshly-squeezed orange juice and some oranges to take home.

Sweet temptations from orange valley

That there are unique things growing in the valley of Sóller was recognized in the 90’s already by a German businessman, who founded the company Fet a Sóller (= made in Sóller). Since then he has been selling gourmet products and helps the preservation of local agriculture with the marketing of oranges, almonds and olives. The delicacies can be purchased in a shop across from Sóller’s market hall. There is jam with chili, ginger, mint and tangerine, honey and olive oil from Mallorca as well as almond cream made from fresh almonds. The orange ice cream in the ice cream parlour next door is a treat - with cream and the juice of ripe oranges.

Fresh fish on the harbour’s esplanade

You can take the historic tram to go to Port de Sóller and get off at the restaurant Nunu right at the waterfront. Apart from a versatile tapas menu, fish and seafood also play a part amongst the specialties of the house: Whatever the local fishermen catch in the various seasons, is being served freshly caught. While you wait for your food to be served, you could enjoy a gin tonic, they say here’s where you get the best in town. For afters there is the “Best of Mallorca”, the name of one of the scrumptious desserts. The combination of almonds, sobrasada and honey might sound a little weird, but it does taste rather good.

Stylish coffee culture

Since very recently Port de Sóller can also boast a branch of the Mallorcan coffee company Grand Café Cappuccino. Situated in proximity to the tram stop and with a beautiful view of the yacht harbour. Inside, the café is as stylish as all the branches, from the sunny terrace you can listen to the gentle clink clank of the boats moored in the harbour, you can smell the sea and contemplate the mountains in the distance. Come sundown you can order colour-matching drinks: Bloody Mary or the vitamin power-mix made of oranges from Sóller, passion fruit and coconut.
