The Tramuntana Mountains
This is a spectacular coastline where enchanting villages, such as Deia, Soller, Valldemossa and Banyalbufar, cling to the hillsides.
The narrow cobbled streets of Deia wind up to an historic church. Art galleries, museums and tiny shops mingle with the many restaurants and open-air bars. Just a short drive away, the tiny hamlet of Lluc Alcari is made up of a cluster of old houses perched on the cliﬀs and surrounded by ancient olive groves.
The coastal village of Banyalbufar clings to a hillside famous for its fertile terracing where produce has been grown for many hundreds of years. The magnificent Carthusian monastery dominates Valldemossa, famous for its association with Chopin. Here, there is an collection of his memorabilia and regular piano recitals take place.
The small town of Soller sits midway between the mountains and the sea and is surrounded by orange groves. The main square is the focal point with its cafes, restaurants and tapas bars. Visitors can try an exhilarating trip on the famous narrow-gauge railway to Palma or ride an ancient tram into nearby Port de Sóller. Set in a sheltered circular bay, this former fishing port has a sandy beach and restaurants, shops and bars along the front.
