Son Bunyola: All aboard the train to Sóller

Beyond the gates of Son Bunyola is an island waiting to be discovered.

Take a trip on the old-fashioned slow train from Palma which winds through orange orchards and up over the mountains, stopping briefly at Bunyola (close to the estate), before reaching Sóller.

The wooden train is decorated with art by Miro, and both Palma and Sóller stations feature mini art museums with works by Picasso and Miro – certainly not your average train station!

When you arrive at Sóller Old Town head to one of the small cafes in the main square for a refreshing drink and a spot of people watching. Take a wander around and marvel at the architecture, local art galleries and the fascinating history – did you know it owes its wealth to the valley’s abundance of citrus groves?

Then hop on the little tram down to Port de Sóller and soak up the sea views. Once an old fishing harbour, the bay is the perfect place to eat fresh seafood, or to take a boat trip to one of the neighbouring bays.

If wine tasting is more your thing, then it’s all aboard the Mallorca Wine Express!

This gourmet wine train runs on Mondays and Thursdays through some of Mallorca’s finest and oldest vineyards, weaving its way through the beautiful countryside of the Bodega Jose L. Ferrer vineyard in Binissalem, which has been run by the Ferrer family since 1931.
