Wander down the narrow, winding streets of Palma and you will be pleasantly surprised and delighted by what you find. This is a vibrant city with modernist architecture and pretty squares at every turn, and is dominated by the striking cathedral overlooking the colourful marina. From the heart of the city, a delightful historic railway heads north through the mountains to the charming mountain village of Sóller.
Mallorca’s most dramatic scenery – and one of its prettiest villages – is to be found in the Tramuntana Sierra in the north-west of the island. These rugged mountains provide a spectacular backdrop to clusters of honey-coloured houses which sit amid immaculate terraces of orange and lemon trees stretching as far as the eye can see. Your base is charming Sóller, a bustling place nestling in a fertile, bowl-shaped valley surrounded by 1,000-metre-high peaks.
