Would you like to visit two of the most beautiful villages of Mallorca?


Welcome to Serra de Tramuntana! Discover two of the most stunning villages of the main mountain range of Mallorca: Valldemossa and Sóller.

Valldemossa is the hometown of the unique Mallorcan saint: santa Catalina Tomàs. It stands out thanks to its cobblestone streets and lovely alleys and its quietness. The worship to the saint is so important and that is why you will find in every single house and shop a small ceramic tile with Santa Catalina. Furthermore, I need to talk about its most famous building: the Carthusian monastery, old royal palace from the 14th century that became monastery during the 15th century and nowadays a museum. And of course, the Coca de Patata the tastiest sweet of the village, I suggest you tasting it with hot chocolate during winter and almond shake during summer.

And the other village: Sóller. It is located in a deep valley known as "the Orange valley". In Sóller we must talk about the Modernism houses and monuments built during the 20th century by sollerics enriched abroad.

Itinerary

This full day excursion begins in Palma and we will go towards Valldemossa, during the road trip we can contemplate the spectacular landscape. Once in Valldemossa, we will walk through the streets and alleys and we will visit the parish church and the place where Santa Catalina was born. If you like, we could visit the Carthusian monastery and enjoy a piano concert. Before leaving the town, we suggest you tasting the famous Coca de patata.

Then we will continue to Sóller, however during the tour we will stop to one of the most stunning viewpoints of the island (and one of the most romantic places during the sunset): Na Foradada.

Finally, we will get to Sóller where we walk around and then will go the Port of Sóller to end the tour and eat in a cosy restaurant.
