The gardens of Alfabia are not the largest or most spectacular Moorish-style gardens in Spain, but they are one of the best executed. The gardens are quite small, but my wife and I still managed to spend two hours and possibly could have spent longer. We went on a rather hot August day (low to mid-30s Celsius), but as with... More

Yes, it costs a lot compared to other things on the island, but we thought it was worth the money. The gardens are very nice and calm. One can relax and take amazing pictures. We liked our bit of time there. Go in the evening and there won´t be many people.

Don't be put off by the location, just off the main Palma-Soller road by the toll booth. Once you are through the gates, you enter a peaceful estate. The smallish garden has a number of Moorish touches and includes an impressive arbour with water jets (no one can resist pressing the button to make the jets come on). The garden... More

Lush, cool oasis of a garden. Lovely place to visit on a hot day. Small but beautiful and plenty to enjoy. Would return.

Very highly recommended. Lots of shady spots. Popular place for painters. Kids will love the water feature and the goats.

Like many others we revisited the lovely garden at Alfabia, which is located just before the tunnel on the Palma- Soller road. There are many excellent reviews of the place. But not everyone knows that a few miles south, just of the same road near the Santa Maria roundabout, is the entrance to RAIXA, a beautiful old Majorca estate with... More

The gardens were old and very pretty. The old house was very interesting. The fresh orange juice at the cafe was very refreshing. Easy trip by bus as it stops right outside. Not a huge attraction so a couple of hours is ample.

Although most of the buses that go to Soller pass by the entrance it's only 1 an hour which actually stops, there so don't make the mistake we almost made! that said it's a truly lovely spot which is best to visit towards the end of the afternoon so the heat is a little less intense...the Bougainvillea is wonderful at...

There are only a few places in Majorca where you can get a taste of how things were in Majorca centuries ago. This is one of them. It's not a palace, it's not a castle, it's a Posessió (old Majorca estate) with beautiful gardens and water fountains. I live here, but visit it from time to time, especially when I... More

We first visited Alfabia 25 years ago when our children were teenagers. They still have fond memories of our day out there especially the freshly squeezed orange juice we had at the bar in the centre of the garden. We tried it again this year just as good. The gardens are a delight, cool and shady on a hot day.... More
