This is a multipurpose square in the Porta neighbourhood, a green space full of trees that is used for festival and cultural events. A functional space too, which does not ignore aesthetics or culture. It has a fountain, a lake, a waterfall and a sculpture entitled Homage to the Mediterranean.

When you enter from the mountain side, Plaça de Sóller conceals its structure of terraces and the lake separating the greenery from the paved esplanade. You can get an idea of the whole by walking up any of the two ramps that start at either end and run round the perimeter of the square, rising up and creating a mirador-balcony over its facilities.

As you make your way up the first sections of one ramp, you will be accompanied by the swaying branches of a Chinese wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) next to a wall that gradually gains height. During springtime the pome flowers, which can grow up to 30 cm and have a strong fragrance, fall, hanging from the railings, towards the garden. From the opposite side of the square, you can see the paved part, the stage for neighbourhood events, activities, festivals, auditions and shows. The lake, waterfall and backdrop of trees act as a screen and dampen the sound of the busiest streets.
