Entdecken Sie die besten Osteraktivitäten in Sóller

The Sóller Valley is a fantastic and unforgettable destination to visit at any time of the year. A destination that will take you to discover the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana , Mallorcan tradition and nature in a magical place between the sea and the mountains. However, there are special days when visiting this fantastic Mediterranean city becomes an even more complete and special experience. Appointments like the one we present to you today to discover the Sóller Valley at one of the most traditional and picturesque times of the year. A time full of local gastronomy, culture and tradition: Easter .


Now that spring is in full swing, there are tons of things to do and see during Easter week . We propose several activities that you can do during a four-day stay from Thursday to Sunday in Puerto de Sóller to fully enjoy Easter in our municipality.

After breakfast at Hotel Aimia, we walk from the hotel towards Santa Catalina , the picturesque fishing district. Once there, we walk towards the Museu de la Mar through the picturesque streets until we reach the Mirador de Santa Catalina , an idyllic place from which we can enjoy the view of the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the bay of the port of Sóller on the other to be able to enjoy. After taking photos, we have the option to visit the Museu de la Mar , located at the same viewpoint, or continue our route. After this break we head back to the center of the port towards the Hotel Aimia until we reach the traditional market that only takes place on Thursdays. A typical market with artisan and gastronomic products. We will then continue our visit towards the promenade and Calle Jaume Torrens, two of the most commercial areas of the port, where we can have a snack or a coffee and discover local craft products such as esparto grass baskets, thread shirts, etc. 


After shopping, we recommend you take a lunch break and enjoy an authentic culinary experience at Airecel Restaurant . A magical place where you can relax before enjoying Mediterranean cuisine in a unique and daring way. After lunch we go to the Fischerkai, which is located at the end of the promenade next to the military base. A place where you can discover the essence and fishing tradition of the port of Sóller by watching the arrival of the fishing boats (at 5 p.m.) and the fresh fish that you can later eat in the local restaurants and in the " Panades de gatí " , one of the typical gastronomic products of Easter. After taking our photos, we go to the tram stop, located in the center of the port, and head up to the center of Sóller on a fantastic walk through the orange groves . Once in Plaça Constitució , we recommend that you take a walk through the center and enjoy the atmosphere of Maundy Thursday and the square full of hoods in the costumes of the different brotherhoods and colors that gather at 8 p.m. for the first procession of Holy Week to the Parròquia de St. Bartomeu . If you want to see the procession, we recommend that you stand near the stairs of the church to have a better view of the processions and the representations of this festival. At the end of this first day we take a taxi back to the hotel. 


Sóller is undoubtedly the center of an infinite number of hiking routes , and of course we propose a very special and simple route, closely linked to Holy Week. We start from the Hotel Aimia towards the center of Sóller (we can go up by tram , bus or taxi). Once there, we go to Plaça del Estiradors , a small square in the north of the municipality, which we reach between picturesque Mallorcan houses. Once there, we see a sign that shows us the way to the community cemetery. So let's go in that direction until we reach him. While it is true that it is a cemetery, we must say that from here you have one of the best views in the municipality. So if you are curious you can visit it before moving on. After a short break, we leave the cemetery on the right and continue along the path until we see the signpost GR-221 , which indicates the path to " Ses Tres Creus ". After less than 30 minutes we reach the summit of Puig d'en Barrera . This is the place where, according to legend, the " Sagrades Formes " were hidden during the landing of the pirates on May 11, 1561, and where we can view the monument " Ses Tres Creus ", erected in the 1940s in honor of the Heart Jesus built it and is still unfinished. We then climb the monument's stairs and when we reach the top we are rewarded: with the best and most comprehensive view of the Sóller valley , the harbor and Fornalutx . After enjoying the scenery, we return to the center of Sóller . Here we recommend you stop at one of the many bakeries in the area and buy a " panada " or a " cocarroi ". This savory pastry with meat or fish, vegetables and sausage is a tradition at this time of year. Finally, we can enjoy this fantastic snack with a drink in the center before returning to the hotel or watching the Descent from the Cross in the parish church of St. Bartomeu and the Good Friday procession. 

The third day of our visit to the heart of the Mediterranean offers us the opportunity to get to know the historic center of Sóller at its best. After breakfast at the Hotel Aimia , we go to the tram stop to go to the Sóller market square . And as soon as we arrive we will notice that something else is going on. Every Saturday there is a weekly market in the Sóller valley . A picturesque market where you can enjoy the atmosphere of the village, the essence of Mallorcan life and the many stalls offering both food and typical, artisanal products. After visiting the Mercadillo, which stretches from the Gran Hotel to Plaça d'Espanya behind the Town Hall, we go to one of the many bakeries in the center of Sóller to buy the sweet pastries typical of Easter in Sóller: crespells and rubiols . The crespells are made from flour, butter, olive oil, egg yolks, sugar, grated lemon peel, oranges and water and have different shapes such as stars or fish, while the rubiols are always crescent-shaped and are filled with angel hair, cottage cheese, chocolate or pudding. These pastries are a must-try, as are the “ Panades ” and the “ Cocarrois ”.


After buying our Easter pastries, we continue our walk towards Calle de la Luna . A very special street, even busier on Saturday, with many local handicraft products such as esparto grass baskets, ceramics, albarques and much more. Undoubtedly a perfect plan to get to know the daily life of the residents of the municipality and the atmosphere of a Saturday morning in the Sóller Valley. At lunchtime we recommend that you complete the visit with a fantastic Mediterranean lunch with high quality products at the Can Blau restaurant at the Gran Hotel Sóller . After lunch, we recommend a walk to discover the contrast between Saturday morning and afternoon in the center of Sóller . A unique contrast that allows you to enjoy this magical Mediterranean place in two completely different atmospheres before returning to the port to enjoy a pleasant walk along the seafront promenade with the sunset as the main attraction. 


On the last day of our visit, we recommend that you get up early to experience first-hand one of the oldest and most special traditions of the people of Sóller : El encuentro , the procession in which Jesus and the Virgin Mary meet after the resurrection of Jesus. Although it is a religious event, we recommend you see it whether you are a believer or not because it is a special event that only takes place once a year in the community. So after breakfast we go to Plaça Constitució in the center of Sóller to get a good spot to watch the procession at around 8:40 a.m. Please note that we do not recommend taking the tram to the center as the first tram leaves at 8.30am and you will not arrive in time. 

Once in the square, we recommend that you stand at the edge of s' Alameda , the small square in front of the church. At this point you can watch the square fill with people until suddenly an overwhelming silence fills the entire square. A silence that marks the beginning of the meeting, which lasts about 20 minutes and is accompanied by the musical band of the Valley of Sóller. After the procession, we recommend that you visit another magical place on the Mediterranean: the neighboring village of Fornalutx, which has already been awarded several times as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. 


As you already know, you can reach Fornalutx through the various hiking trails that connect the two municipalities and even by bike; however, we recommend you take a taxi. Once there, you should lose yourself in the picturesque stone streets full of nature, light and fresh air. After enjoying the landscape of this magical place in the Sierra de Tramuntana , you will have the opportunity to have lunch in one of the municipality's restaurants, which have something to suit all tastes. After lunch we invite you to take a walk from Fornalutx towards Sóller to discover another magical place in the Valley of the Orange Trees: Biniaraix. If you follow the road towards Sóller, you will find a junction on the left that will take you to Biniairix. After a pleasant 25-minute walk from the center of Fornalutx , you will discover " Ses Rentadores de Biniaraix ", a historic place where locals used to wash their laundry, and the start of the Barranc de Biniaraix , one of the most popular hiking routes in Mallorca. After taking a few photos, we can enjoy a glass of fresh orange juice in the small square of the "llogaret" and discover the essence of Tramuntana in a quiet and peaceful place. Finally we continue down to Sóller until we reach Calle de la Luna , which takes us back to the center. Here we can take the tram or a taxi and return to the Hotel Aimia to end our four days in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana with a fantastic dinner at the Airecel restaurant . If you stay at our hotel, do not hesitate to ask us any questions or receive information about the different activities you can do  during your stay in the Sóller Valley.
