Photographer's Note

This is the central Plaça de sa Constitució in the town of Sóller in the mountainous west of Mallorca. The plaça in well known for its Església de Sant Bartomeu which lies on its south side, but here we are looking eastward to the also famous marble fountain in its centre.

This place tends to be quite busy with tourists as the square is surrounded by cafés, restaurants and bars and the Sóller terminus of the vintage "Orange Express" tramway is conveniently close to here for those wishing to travel the leisurely journey to Puerto de Sóller.

Here we see the marble fountain in the foreground with restaurants behind, but on the right is another significant building, the Bank of Sóller, a remarkable 1912 Modernista building by the Catalan architect Joan Rubió i Bellver, a follower of Antoni Gaudí.
