Overview
More
Alfabia, originally the residence of the Moorish viceroy of Majorca , Ben - Abet, who ordered to make the mudejar celling in 1220, lies on the southern slope of the Coll de Soller. The house and the garden combine an area of outstanding beauty and have been declared by the goverment a cultural monument in 1954. The murmur of the water is a constant backdrop to the whole walk. Inside the house, worthy to mention "el llibre de ses franqueses" given by the King Jaume I in 1246 to Majorca and the gothic chair, hand made in Flanders at the end of XV century.

This garden is very nice and romantic. Great views, big viraety of trees, plants and some animals behind fences. We really enjoyed freshly squized juice in the bar within the premisses. I believe the oranges were picked from the trees kept in the Alfabia garden....More

This fascinating estate and gardens is worth a detour. It is best to have a guided tour of the house and gardens. Ensure you have a glass of fresh orange juice as some point at the kiosk.

We visited with some friends and spent a couple of hours, strolling around these moorish gardens, with lots of little islands of calm and interesting planting. There are farm animals and the house is equally very interesting. There is a basic cafe in the grounds...More

These gardens are recommended in the guidebooks but you are likely to be very disappointed. The gardens are small and have little of interest certainly when we went in September. Save your money and have a drink instead in Soller's lovely main square or down...More
