Sollér is one of a trio of attractions in the northwest of Mallorca, along with Deia and Valldemossa in a broad bowl valley, dotted with orange trees and ancient olive groves.
Its centre is filled with plane trees, little cafes and old town houses, while one of its main draws is the Ca'n Prunera, a modernist house turned museum designed by Josep Rubio i Bellver that features a permanent Modernist collection of work by artists including Picasso and Miró. The Sollér Botanical Gardens, dedicated to the preservation and study of Balearic fauna and featuring plants from other parts of the Mediterranean, is another feature well worth visiting.
Sollér is a few kilometres inland from the coastal resort and harbour at Puerto de Sollér, where a wide pedestrian promenade lined with bars, cafes and restaurants joins the beaches of Es Traves and En Repic. It's a lovely place for a gentle stroll, with views across the bay towards the El Faro lighthouse at entrance to the harbour. A tourist tram that chugs along the seafront provides an alternative and fun means of getting around the port. Sollér is also served by a historic railway, the Ferrocaril de Sollér, which runs between the town and the Mallorcan capital, Palma.
