The Serra de Tramuntana takes up about a third of Mallorca’s surface area. It stretches along a southwest-northeast diagonal, from Andratx as far as Cape Formentor, running parallel to the island’s northern coast.

The Serra de Tramuntana takes up about a third of Mallorca’s surface area. It stretches along a southwest-northeast diagonal, from Andratx as far as Cape Formentor, running parallel to the island’s northern coast.

Between the sea and the mountains. That is where the enchanting port of Sóller lies. The breeze enhances the two essences it emanates: the orange trees and the aroma of fishing that only ports can offer. Located in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains, it was the refuge of sailors throughout time, and amidst its natural beauty we find the pleasant district of Santa Catalina, with its fishing atmosphere and little streets with fairytale names – trades, fish and naturally, the names of the winds that batter the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains.

The Sierra de Tramuntana houses villages which, like Valldemossa, do not exist to be defined, but to be experienced. Exploring its steep streets, marvelling at the views and the aroma this valley offers as you try a ‘coca de patata’, visiting the house of Santa Catalina Thomás or the Carthusian Monastery, the cells of which were home to the love of Chopin and George Sand for one winter… No wonder Valldemossa was the place of inspiration of artists such as Jovellanos, Rubén Darío or Santiago Russiñol, along with many more.
