What can Sóller offer you

Witness to the harsh working days of the fishermen of Santa Catalina and its confrontations with the harsh conditions of the sea, in the hill of the Port de Sóller we find the Santa Catalina de Alexandria Oratory at the headquarters of the  Sea Museum of Sóller, with exhibitions that show the relationship between Sóller and the Sea, showing naval objects that were used for fishing and commerce.

The original temple was built in the thirteenth century but during a pirate attack in 1542 it was destroyed and subsequently reconstructed in 1550. According to the legend, the oratory was built near there where Sant Ramón de Penyafort began its journey to Barcelona and the church was devoted to St. Catherine of Alexandria for the devotion professed by the Dominicans, the congregation of Sant Ramón de Penyafort.

The Mirador de Santa Catalina offers beautiful panoramic views of the Port of Sóller and the cliffs of the Sierra de Tramuntana: an ideal place to relax by observing how, at sunset, the sun melts with the Mediterranean Sea just before 'hiding' and giving step by night.
