Public transport between the old town and port is good via the tram system which runs more or less every
1/2 hour. The railway then takes over for the trip down into Palma, or alternatively a fairly frequent bus service
also runs throughout the day. We are often asked for timetable information for Majorca buses. Experience has
shown us that the expression "timetable" may be a little too formal to describe the times that buses run to,
however, for Soller this information can be found at:
Both villages have reasonable shopping facilities for the everyday essentials. The commercial centre of Puerto de Soller is near to the harbour, and offers range of essentials together with the usual array of souvenir shops. Soller old town does offer more choice, with a full range of small town shops. One establishment certainly worth a visit is actually within the train station building called "Fet a Soller".
Soller is also the home of The Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences, and when combined with the Botanical Gardens, it's certainly worth a visit. The Museum was first opened in 1992 in the former mansion house 'el Camp d'en Prohom' that dates back to around the turn of the 20th Century.
The Botanical Gardens now occupy what used to be the garden of the mansion. The gardens are open most days,
except Mondays, from 10am and admission is quite reasonable at around 5 euro each for adults. Contact details

Based in the town of Soller, La Luna was the first factory in Mallorca to produce Sobrassada, which is a traditional Mallorcan sausage.
Production of the Sobrassada first began in the year 1900, and now well over 100 years later, is still being manufactured in the same
factory, along with a selection of other delicatessen products. In recognition of this heritage, La Luna have recently opened the old side
of the factory as a museum and shop. Beginning in March, visitors to the museum can also undertake factory tours which will demonstrate
how the production process has changed over the last 100 years, followed by an opportunity to taste a selection of La Luna products, along
with other Mallorcan products such as locally produced wines and olives. Contact details for more information are:
