Take a secret shortcut in Mallorca

If you’re driving to Sóller from Palma de Majorca on the island of Mallorca, take the tunnel (€4.45) at Alfàbia, rather than the road over the mountains. The latter is spectacular—lemon and olive trees on stone-walled terraces, farmhouses perched on the edges of forested cliffs—but demanding. But don’t worry about missing out—there are even more picturesque mountain roads ahead.
