Discover two of the most beautiful villages in Serra de Tramuntana.
Guided tour with an official tour guide of Tour Teatro.
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 of 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 and a sentence: Santa Catalina Tomàs pregau per nosaltres (“Santa Catalina pray for us”). Furthermore, we need to talk about its most famous building: the Carthusian monastery, an old royal palace from the 14th century that became a monastery during the 15th century and nowadays a museum. And of course, the Coca de Patata is the tastiest sweet in the village, we suggest you taste it with hot chocolate during winter and an 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 (France, Belgium and Switzerland among others). Two of the main Modernism building are Can Prunera and the parish church of Sant Bartomeu, known as “The Cathedral of the Mountain”.
This full-day excursion starts in Palma from where we will head towards Valldemossa, where we will be able to contemplate the marvellous nature that the Serra de Tramuntana offers. Once there, we will take a pleasant stroll through its cobbled streets and alleys and visit the parish church of Sant Bartomeu and the birthplace of Santa Catalina Thomàs.
The entire village is dedicated to this Mallorcan saint and on the doorways of all the houses and businesses you can find ceramics with scenes from the life of Santa Catalina.
If you are interested, you can also visit the monastery of the Carthusian monastery of Valldemossa and enjoy a piano concert. This building, created in the 14th century as a royal palace, is one of the most emblematic buildings in the municipality of Valldemossa. In the 15th century, it was donated to the Carthusian monks and began to function as the Carthusian Monastery. Finally, in the 19th century, due to the confiscations of Mendizábal, part of the monastery was sold to private hands. It was at this time that the cells were opened to new guests: artists of all kinds from all over the world, including Fréderic Chopin, stayed in this building that was so important to the life of the people of Valldemossa.
We cannot leave Valldemossa without having tasted a delicious Coca de Patata.
Then we will continue to Sóller, however, during the tour, we will stop at one of the most stunning viewpoints of the island (and one of the most romantic places during the sunset): Na Foradada.
When we arrive in Sóller we will take a short walk around the village. Compared to the villages of Mallorca and those of the Serra de Tramuntana in particular, this municipality is totally different due to its great isolation until the 20th century. With many connections and influences from France, its architecture is unique in the area: modernist architecture with art nouveau influences.
The façade of the parish church of Sant Bartomeu and the Banc de Sóller are twins and the work of Joan Rubió i Bellver, one of Antoni Gaudí’s disciples.
We will also see the oldest train and tram in Mallorca. The Sóller train was inaugurated in 1912 and thanks to it the isolation of the people of Sóller came to an end.
Before heading towards the port, we can stroll along the main street, Carrer Lluna, and taste the juice, sorbet or ice cream made from the famous Sóller oranges.
Finally, we will go to the port of Sóller to finish the visit and have lunch in a cosy restaurant overlooking the sea.
