Sóller train

Ferrocarril de Sóller, a train steeped in history

A century-old train connects Palma with Sóller on a route that runs from the centre of the city of Palma northwards, through fields of carob and almond trees until it reaches the most spectacular part of the route: the 13 tunnels, one of which being almost 3km long, that cross the World Heritage Site of Serra de Tramuntana. Between the terraces of olive and citrus trees, the train arrives at the beautiful village of Sóller, known as the golden valley owing to the orange and lemon groves that can be seen in the area. 

The station in Sóller is situated in a building dating from 1606. It is the oldest station in the world and, on the ground floor, houses an exhibition of original works by two world-renowned artists, Miró and Picasso.

It is a popular tourist attraction not only due to its spectacular route but also because it is a 1912 train that still retains its original character. 

In Sóller, you can take the tramway which opened in October 1913. While you sit in vintage carriages that preserve all the charm of bygone times, you are taken through orchards and gardens to the port.
