A brief little history of Port de Soller
- The Port was originally a small fishing village. Separated from the rest of Mallorca by the Tramuntana mountain ranges. Past generations had to take to the water to make their trade possible. The tunnel through the mountain that now connects the rest of Mallorca with Soller was built in 1997.
- The historic train “El tren de Soller” which travels from Palma to Soller began in 1912. This stunning wooden train is really beautiful.
- Mallorca is covered with citrus fruits trees but Soller is famously known for its oranges! Orange growing really expanded here in the 19th Century. These deliciously fruits are celebrated at the ‘Fira de la Taronja’ every June in Soller.
- One last interesting historical fact in Mallorcan history is the invasion at Soller’s beach in 1561 by the fleets of Turkish and Algerian pirates! The towns inhabitants bravely defened their homes from the attack and earned themselves a place in Mallorca’s history book! The attack is re-enacted in the village every year at the festival ‘Es Firo.’
