Mallorca - train to Sóller

Still posting about Mallorca - but hey it's November and generally grey in this part of the world at the moment, which makes recalling blue skies and warmth so pleasant!

In this post I have only covered the train journey to Sóller and the exhibitions of Miró and Picasso.  For more info about the train click here or here to watch a YouTube video.  


Heading for the mountains, passing through olive groves on the way.







Views from the station stop at Bunyola.



The train stopped for a while giving us an opportunity to look down on our destination and to admire the mountains that surround Sóller.





I didn't take any photos of our approach and arrival at Sóller Station but you will find some here and Val Javin's interesting recollection here is well worth a read.

Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibitions - see the work of Joan Miró below. 





and Picasso's ceramics 






Lucky us!  Click to enlarge.  Next time I'll post about our journey on the tram from Sóller to the Port.

  2. Your photographs of the train to Soller brought it all back to me - I think we probably have a very similar set of pictures!

    I never got to see the Joan Miro exhibition, it may not even have been there when we went, but I did buy a Joan Miro T-shirt!
