Your driver and tourist assistant will meet you at the cruise port or your accommodation. The accessible round tour Mallorca starts with a visit to Valldemossa. It is a very beloved village in Mallorca and you will get to know why! You find the town in the hills of the Tramuntana range, not far from Palma, the capital. Valldemossa is surrounded by beautiful nature. You will see the lush green and forested countryside.
The landmark that everyone comes to see is the historic 13th-century monastery. It is well-known because of its link to the Polish composer Frederic Chopin. He spent a winter at the Real Cartuja (Royal Palace) with its gardens and church. He spent the winter with French writer Aurore Dupin. She was his lover and was better known as her alias George Sand. Enjoy the village itself with plenty of charming little streets, cafes, galleries and gift shops. Feeling a bit peckish? Look for a traditional family bakery and order the local specialty ‘coca de patata’. This translates as ‘potato cake’ and is a local specialty.
We continue along the coast and will make a stop in Sa Foradada. Wander around and go and see the special hole-in-the-wall rock formation by the water. Some say it resembles an elephant from afar. Enjoy the sights of the olive groves and paths flanked by lush pine trees and old sea caves.
The last stop of this accessible tour in Mallorca takes you to Soller. Imagine this: lush valleys, orange groves, mountains, and sea. That is what you are going to get when you visit Soller. Firstly, visit the town square. There is something for everybody in the center. For the hungry ones, there are several tapas bars and a fine selection of pastry-shops. For the ones with a sweet tooth, try the local ice-cream and freshly squeezed orange juice. Oranges are typical here and very present in the local cuisine. Secondly, you pay a visit to the impressive church of Sant Bartomeu. An inside visit is not possible due to accessibility issues. But luckily the outside is worth the visit as well. The church takes a big presence in the town square and was first built in the 13th century.
Next, wander through the old town which has a typically Mediterranean feel. This is probably because of the cozy alleyways. After Soller town, you visit Soller port. This is a wonderful little village in one of Mallorca’s most beautiful harbors. This town has the best of both worlds: magnificent mountain scenery and a gorgeous sea view.
