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.

We did not like it much and 7,50€ is way overpriced. There was a little bit of interesting info on the house but the garden was small, empty and unkempt, part of it closed because of a storm one month ago (no efforts for rebuilding...More

It is worth a detour; beautiful gardens with an interesting house, very close to the entrance to the Soller tunnel. Understaffed and very limited café in the garden. Two sets of excellent toilets. Unfortunately the delightful “water play” colonnade has been badly damaged and unlikely...More

In the past would definitely have given it 5 stars as it was one of our favorite places. Not so this time. Wonderful fountain walk had suffered some storm damage, but seemed no repairs started. Entire walk roped off which meant no access to delightful...More

The house was very interesting, the garden smaller than expected. The pond is good, there were goats and horses to see but you couldn’t get easily close enough to stroke them or appreciate them. The whole garden does need a bit more attention. There is...More

We previously visited the gardens in early summer time, so it was interesting to see it in March. Whilst in many ways the garden was still sleeping, it was lovely to walk around with fewer visitors, and hear the frogs singing in the pond. It...More

Relaxing afternoon stroll round the shady gardens, pools & fountains, lovely hour or two. Cute goats and a view of the vintage train as it passed on its way to Soller were both unexpected bonuses! The displays in the house are interesting too. Fresh orange...More
