Located in the heart of the mountains
This museum, that works as cultural center, hosts a collection of tools and decorated rooms, showing how locals used to live in the 18th and 19th Centuries. Through its installations, we can figure out how life was for peasants and also for landlords. It also works as an arts gallery hosting, for example, the flower exhibition in Sa Fira festivities.
Planned in 1985 and opened in 1992, the Botanical Gardens exhibits endemic species from the island, as well as trees and bushes brought from all over the Mediterranean shores. It holds cultural activities all year long, all related to environment and flora.
Located in a modernist mansion, this museum exhibits from furniture and decoration belonging to the 20th Century, to pieces that belong to private collections, including local artists’ works. It actually is one of the great modernist museums of the island for its collection as well as for the marvellous environment where it is set.
Located on the ground floor of the station, the exhibition space offers us a permanent exhibition of ceramics from teachers such as Joan Miró or Pablo Picasso.
In addition, Sóller has several churches, many modernist buildings (such as the imposing building of the Bank of Spain, in the Plaça de la Constitució), and extends along five more cores besides the Port, called L'horta, Biniaraix, Estiradors, Argiles and s'Alqueria des Comte. The walks along the Carrer de Sa Lluna (the most commercial street of the town, traditional craftsmen and modern boutiques are intermingled) or around you will discover the true essence of the valley where Sóller is located. A place with its own character whose people, cuisine, monuments and landscapes will be hard to forget.
