Deep in the city of Palma, you will find an active train station and a vintage style wooden train ready to take you wherever your heart desires. Or, at least to Sóller. One of the things on our list to do in Mallorca was take the train from Palma to Sóller – it’s all over the blogosphere and the few people that sent over Mallorca recommendations also mentioned it. Since it’s only an hour ride, it’s an easy day trip from Palma.
Sóller is a quaint little town on Mallorca known for its abundant citrus groves and other local artisan gourmet goodies. The town sits on right on the water and holds a strong connection to France, as many of its earlier residents moved to the country and back again. Sadly, we didn’t get to make it to Sóller on this visit. But I did get some train station photos!
Lauren and I met up with a photographer while in Palma and he brought us to this pretty train station as the backdrop for our first looks. I felt like a 1960s socialite heading to a luxurious summer getaway in my simple white slip and tropical print kimono. Couldn’t you see Holly Golightly wearing this if she ever visited Mallorca? All I need is my sleep mask and earplugs and I’m ready for the train journey!
Have you ever ridden on a train?
