The island of Menorca is one of the most beautiful and wild of all the Balearic Islands. With a population that almost reaches 100,000 inhabitants and an area of 692 km2, Menorca receives this name because it is the smaller of the two Gimnesias islands (Majorca is bigger) and this was how the Romans decided to name the island. It belongs to the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. The most important cities of Menorca are Ciutadella and Mahón, both very tourist friendly.
In addition to its incredible beaches and coves, - then we will talk about them - in Menorca there are many points of natural and cultural interest that you can visit.
For starters, a visit to Ciutadella is a must. Here we recommend you visit Menorca Cathedral: Menorca's most important Gothic building. Dating from the 13th and 14th centuries on an ancient mosque, is Plaza del Borne and Plaza de la Esplanada: one next to the other.
The Castillo de San Nicolás, built in the 18th century to defend the port of the city, the Municipal Museum of Ciudadela and of course the Port of Ciutadella, although be careful not to be caught by the famous "rissaga".
Another visit not to be missed if you are in Menorca is Mahon. Mahon is the capital of Menorca and its port is considered one of the best natural harbors in the world. In Mahon, be sure to visit the Fortress of La Mola, the Museum of Minorca, with objects from the prehistoric period, the Town Hall, where you can see the clock brought by the English governor Richard Kane
