Mallorca’s Historical Train Trip

Mallorca’s Historical Train Trip

16 April, 1912 marked a dream come true for the market gardeners of Soller, a lush valley tucked between the majestic Serra de Tramuntana mountains on the Spanish island of Mallorca.

Carrying a cache of Soller oranges, the flower adorned ‘Orange Tram’ passed cheering crowds on its maiden journey which marked the start of the crucial link to the island capital of Palma. Residents of the town had bought shares in the railway company and raised 3.5 million Pesetas to help build the train track to carry their produce to the markets.

Today, more than a hundred years later, guests at the Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa can relive this historical journey as they travel to Soller town on the historical Orange Tram. After passing through beautiful olive groves, guests discover another surprise at the Soller train station, which features original works by legendary artists Joan Miro and Picasso.
