The natural environment of Soller has a variety of incredible landscapes. This is borne out by different mountain, coast and sea routes. The impressive views from Serra de Tramuntana with several peaks of over 1,000 metres, such as Puig Major (1,450), represent the steeper side of the island. Its gorges, gullies and cliffs conceal landscapes which surprise all those walkers who venture along their cobbled and ancestral paths.

The town of Sóller became wealthy because of the valley’s abundant citrus groves and as the area was isolated from the rest of Mallorca by mountains the oranges were shipped to France from the nearby Puerto de Sóller.
