Discover Soller's past sailor

The history of the Port de Sóller is linked to the sea: head there with the Sóller tram and walk through its cozy streets while discovering a past starring fishermen, sailors, pirate attacks and emigrants.

To the right of the Port de Sóller, with the typical appearance of a small fishing village with small houses and windy streets, we find the Santa Catalina neighborhood where formerly the fishermen of the port lived and kept their boats: the perfect place to start delve into Soller's sailor past. Stroll through its cobbled streets, sit down at one of the many terraces to taste the famous prawns of Sóller or head towards the hill of the port.

The Turó del Port de Sóller, located on the peninsula that protects the bay from the inclemency of the sea, we find the Oratori de Santa Catalina de Alexandria currently home to the Museum of the Sea of ​​Sóller, with exhibitions showing the relationship between Sóller and the Sea, showing naval objects that were used for fishing and commerce.

Right next to it is the Mirador de Santa Catalina, nowadays, a perfect place to watch the sun setting over the Mediterranean known as "La Miranda" because of its past: there were the relatives of the sailors of the Port de Sóller to know the state of the sea and to know if their loved ones would return safely.
