The Fortress of Isabel II was built between the years 1850 and 1875; it is located in one of the most beautiful spots on the island of Minorca and constituiting one of the best examples of late XIXth Century military architecture. This is a huge historic fort, open to the public, situated at the mouth of the harbour of Mahon. Guided tours are available (with prior booking) but you can walk freely with handsets. Itis well organised.

This place really is amazing. 8 Euros entry (extra for audio guide, Ebike or buggy), but enough to keep you exploring for hours, or even days, it just goes on and on. I spent about three and a half hours walking round the site and...More

We like visiting castles and other historic sites, but had no idea just how extensive this would be. The defensive design was very interesting, and it is almost a shame that it was never attacked.

This is a good excursion for a dull day on the island. The fort is huge and disorientating, with some great vantage points for firing cannonballs at ships in the bay. Parts are well preserved or restored but the signage and the visual explanation could...More

This fort cannot fail to impress through its sheer size. Only a fraction is publicly accessible but that is quite sufficient, with lots of underground passages, gun emplacements, decaying buildings etc. The less mobile can hire golf buggies or the more adventurous oversized mountain bikes:...More
