Can Mayol, an old fortified property built in 1606, is the main building of the Railway Station in Soller. The station, that also has other buildings for the garages and workshops, is the link for the two railway lines in Soller, the Soller train, which has linked Soller and Palma since 1912, and the Soller Tram, that has communicated Soller with the Port of Soller since 1913.

Since its recent renovation, the Soller station has adapted two exhibition rooms on the ground floor and at present they house two important exhibitions by Miró and Picasso. In the Picasso room there are 50 ceramics carried out between 1948 and 1971 by Pablo Ruiz Picasso (Málaga, 1881 - Mougins, France, 1973). The works belong to the private collection of the editor Pere A. Serra (Sóller, 1928) who has ceded them for ten years. Pere A. Serra, illustrious son of Soller, worked for the Soller Railway company between 1944 and 1948.
