You will also pass through thirteen tunnels before finally arriving at the last stop: Sóller.
Since 1912 this train has been making the trip to Soller and back. Called “Red Lightning” the train needs one hour to cover the 27 kilometres to Sóller. Obviously not a fast ride it allows the passengers to appreciate the scenery through which they pass. It travels through some of the most beautiful landscapes of Mallorca, vistas are often framed between orange groves and lemon trees.
The final station is Sóller, where at one time the loading of oranges for transport to Palma was daily since from the turn of the 20th century the benefits of vitamin C were known.
