What can Sóller offer you
scroll down

At the end of Isabel II Street, almost behind the Church of Sant Bartomeu and the Plaça de la Constitució, we find the Plaça d'Espanya and the railway station of Sóller: an architectural complex dating from the late s. XIX and early XX, respectively.

The Plaça d'Espanya dates from 1869 and was completed in 1912 with the covering of the Torrent Major.

The railway station of Sóller is the point where to make the transfer between the train that connects the city with Palma and the electric tram that goes towards the Port of Sóller and is in the old fortified possession of Can Mayol built in 1606.

During a recent reconstruction, the ground floor of this historic building was renovated to host two exhibition halls: the Sala Miró and the Sala Picasso. In the latter, 50 ceramics made between 1948 and 1971 by the famous Malaga cubist painter are exhibited. This collection was donated by the illustrious son of Sóller, Pere A. Serra who worked in the company of Ferrocarril de Sóller between 1944 and 1948.

The Sala Miró exhibits two series of engravings by the famous Catalan surrealist painter Joan Miró: the Lapidario series (1981), which refers to the properties of stone and the Gaudí series (1979) made to pay homage to the modernist architect, Antoni Gaudí . There is also a large tapestry by Joan Miró presiding over the central staircase of the station.

These works were ceded by the succession of Miró to pay tribute to the artist's link with Sóller: his maternal grandfather was born in soller and that made him visit our valley several times.
