One day, we decided to look at 

Serra de Tramuntana

First of all, we wanted to visit the park of Raixa near the town of Palmanyola.
So we went there.
Unfortunately, it was closed. It's a pity(((...
It's better to check opening days before the trip!

Does anybody know this flower? There are a lot of them on the island! I read somewhere that there were many wild orchids, and this little flower reminded me of the orchid))).

"Empty-handed", we went towards Soller.
As always, there were crowds of people...
I can imagine what's going on there in the height of summer (((...
Especially, at its main square...

Here's the main church - L'Esglesia Parroquial de Sant Bartomeu.
Disciple of Gaudi - the architect Joan RubioIn - "had a hand" in its facade in 1904. And the church itself was built in the 1200's.

Here are some horrors...

This architect, Joan Rubio, also designed the bank, which is located next to the church - you can feel the influence of Gaudí, can't you?

The biggest amount of orange trees on

Mallorca

can be found exactly in Soller - previously, almost all activities here were connected with them. Export of oranges began in 1700's - mainly, in Belgium and France. Therefore, the railway from this town to the coast, to the town of Port de Soller, has been laid. Now, it is a tourist attraction.

March and April is the very season for oranges, and it can be clearly seen - you are offered freshly squeezed orange juice everywhere, and oranges are also sold at every corner...

If the main street of the

town

is absolutely packed, walking along neighboring streets is really pleasing)...
Look at these patios...

I was surprised by flags on many buildings of the town.
I asked one local old lady about that - she said that it were preparations for the celebration, where Christians were fighting the Moors!

Building of the railway station is situated in a historic building, there is also an exhibition of works by Picasso and Miro.
