Sóller Cultural Tour

Leave from the Bay of Palma by coach.
Arrive in the Port of Soller, to connect with the tram to Soller town.
Visit the Sculpture Park in the Port, the railway station in Soller (garden and rooms dedicated to artists Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso) and the Can Prunera Modernist Museum.

The excursion begins in the Port of Soller with a visit to the Sculpture Park. Its exhibits include fine works by contemporary Majorcan artists and by island residents. From here we'll take the tram as far as the railway station in Soller. Here we'll visit the Station Garden and the permanent exhibitions of Picasso's ceramics and "Miró a Soller" which consists of a series of engravings by Joan Miró: Càntic al Sol (1975), Archipel sauvage (1970) Les gens de la Mer (1981) and Maja Negra (1973). Also on show is a large tapestry by Miró and some candles painted by the Catalan artist at the beginning of the 1980s.

From the exhibitions, we'll go to Can Prunera, a beautiful Modernist-style home converted into a museum following a careful restoration. The building, which was first completed in 1911 is a fine example of the conceptual unity of modernism because apart from the architecture, the interior design and furniture all belong to this period. Modernist decoration can be seen in the spiral staircase, the lamps, the glass partitioning, the woodwork, and on the ceilings and floors.

The new art museum at Can Prunera was opened on 24th August, 2009 and its contents feature works by some of the great masters of the 20th century: Picasso, Joan Miró, Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Giacometti, Cézanne, Barceló, Juli Ramis and Matisse, amongst others.
In a short walk through the centre of Soller, we will be able to see other examples of modernist architecture, such as the Bank of Soller and the frontage of the San Bartolomé parish church.

The cost of the excursion: € 25 .- per adult, € 12.50 for children (3-11 years).
