The town of Soller has a lot of charm and beauty. We suggest you here what you can do in Soller on a spring day strolling through its streets full of tradition and colour. Below we list the different places to visit in Soller so that you can organise your itinerary to suit you.
Plaça de la Constitució (200 metres from the Gran Hotel Soller)
This is the heart of the town of Soller. If you want to stroll around the centre of Soller, you can certainly start at the Plaça de la Constitució and admire the architecture of the buildings that surround you, among which the following undoubtedly stand out:
Church of Sant Bartomeu de Soller
Called the Church of Soller, this temple has had five different construction stages throughout its long history, and you can admire different styles: the primitive medieval temple, the Gothic church, the fortification to take refuge from the Turkish invaders, the Baroque style and the Modernist works. Its façade was built by the architect Joan Rubio Bellver, a disciple of the well-known architect Antoni Gaudí.
Soller Town Hall (Ajuntament de Soller)
Located to the right of the Church of Soller, this Baroque building was inaugurated in 1973 by the architect Antoni Coll.
Bank of Soller (Banc de Soller)
This Modernist building was built in 1899 and is located to the left of the church of Soller. It was the headquarters of the now defunct Banco de Soller.
Once the visit to these buildings is over, the best option is undoubtedly to taste the famous Soller gelat (ice cream) in the Fet a Soller shop located in front of the municipal market next to the tramway, or a delicious freshly squeezed Soller orange juice in a bar in Soller square.
The rest of the morning you can stroll around and do some shopping, such as a delicious Mallorcan sobrasada in Ca'n Matarino and visit the shops in Calle de la Luna.
