What can Sóller offer you

Even the most inhospitable corner of Vall de Sóller smells like orange blossom. This citrus, sweet and juicy, was the basis of the economy of Sóller: its intensive cultivation extended to the entire valley and once the oranges were collected they were sent by boat to the south of France, where they were highly appreciated for their quality and flavour.

But at the end of the 19th century, the export of oranges went into decline and staggered the economy of the entire valley and its cultivation was almost abandoned. Luckily, the cultivation of Sóller's oranges were recovered by the people of Sóller and these trees refill the orchards of the valley.

It was in the 16th century when the abundance of water and the exemption of the payment of the tithe of the fruit trees made the orange trees become a new attractive crop for the people of Sóller, that until then had been dedicated to the intensive cultivation of the olive tree and the vine.

For a few years, the Orange Fair has been held in the town where products of all kinds made with this citrus such as jam, juice, flavouring and even an orange liqueur are exhibited.

During the gastronomic days of the orange that are held every year it's possible to enjoy delicious menus in the main restaurants of Sóller and the Port de Sóller in which orange is the main ingredient.
