The Mallorca/Majorca region
While the rest of Majorca is over-run in August, the mountainous north-west coast escapes the worst of the crowds. The area is a walker's paradise: trails wind through pretty hill villages, scented citrus groves tumbling at intervals to rocky coves.
The region's main town, Sóller — with its historic port — is set on a broad bay with sandy beaches. A vintage tram trundles uphill to the Modernist buildings and pavement cafés of the old town. Beyond the main square, cobbled streets give way to dense orange groves, and jagged peaks frame the view. A century old train service links the hidden valley to the outside world operating daily between Soller town to Palma City.
Deià, once home to Robert Graves, and Valldemossa, where Chopin and George Sand spent a winter in the monastery, are a short hop by bus or car. The Valldemossa Chopin Festival runs until August 24, while the Deià International Music Festival continues until September 18.
The picturesque town of Fornalutx is nestled below the feet of the Puig Major at an altitude of 139 metres above sea level and alongside the valley which continues down to Soller. The name means “Furnice” or “the light of the oven”: “Forn” – oven; “lutx” – light. Its origin comes from an old document from the time of conquest when Fornalutx or “Fornalugi” was first mentioned showing evidence of a street layout and before being a Moorish farming village. Always linked to the town of Soller when it comes to history, the village was finally recognized as an independent municipality with their own constitution in 1837.
The old town is medieval with clear Arabic influences in its narrow cobblestone streets, stone steps and steep slopes preserved for pedestrians only. The original stone houses boast ancient mallorquin roof tiles, wooden doors and most have their portals wide-open and are decorated with flowering pots and plants. Many of these houses feature painted tiles on the eaves or “Arab tiles”, a tradition from the sixteenth century. Beside the strictly aesthetical and decorative value, the painted tiles have a symbolic and spiritual value, in order to preserve and defend the house and its inhabitants of all kinds of external evils.
