Arriving in Sóller was a truly beautiful experience. The town is nestled in a valley surrounded by the Tramuntana Mountains, and as we drove down the winding road, the views just kept getting more and more stunning. The sun was shining and the sky was a deep blue, and the fields of citrus trees that dotted the landscape were bursting with bright, colourful fruit.
As we entered the town itself, we were struck by the charming architecture and cobblestone streets. The houses were painted in warm, earthy tones and had terracotta roofs, and the narrow streets were lined with small shops and restaurants. It felt like we had stepped back in time, and we couldn't wait to explore and discover all that Sóller had to offer.
