What to see in Puerto de Sóller
Puerto de Sóller Lighthouses
Located on each side of the entrance to the bay of Puerto de Sóller, the Faro Viejo, the Faro de Sa Punta de sa Creu and the Faro del Cap Gros have been lighting the way for sailors since the 19th century. The Faro Viejo dates back to 1864, but was replaced by the Faro de Sa Punta de sa Creu, located a few meters higher, due to the deteriorating conditions of the original site. There is no access because it is inside a military site and can only be seen from a distance.
On the other hand, the Faro de Cap Gros is located 120 meters above sea level on the Morro des Xoriguer. It is easily accessible from Puerto de Sóller through a scenic road and is the ideal place to enjoy the views and learn how the lighthouse keepers used to live in the past. In addition, it is located next to the Muleta shelter, one of the shelters of the Ruta de Pedra en Sec and a place of passage for many hikers.
