Discover the sailor past of Sóller

The history of the Port de Sóller is linked to the sea: go there with the tram of Sóller and go 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 aspect of a seafaring population of small houses and streets named after winds, we find the neighborhood of Santa Catalina where formerly the fishermen of the port lived and kept their boats: the perfect place to begin to enter inside the past sailor of Sóller. Stroll through its cobbled streets, sit down on one of the many terraces to try the famous prawns in Sóller or head towards the port hill.

The hil of Port de Sóller, located on the peninsula that protects the bay from the inclemency of the sea, we find the Oratori of Santa Catalina de Alexandria, currently the seat of the Museu de la Mar de Sóller, with exhibitions that show the relationship between Sóller and the Sea , showing naval objects that were used for fishing and trade.

Right next to it is the Santa Catalina viewpoint, nowadays, a perfect place to watch the sun set over the Mediterranean Sea known as "La Miranda" because of its past: the relatives of the sailors of the Port de Sóller went there to know the state of the sea and to know if its estimated facts in the sea would return to safe.
