The history of Menorca is caught in this visit, but it is for historians or keen amateur historians more than the layman. Great exercise as it is spread-out over a large area.

Although it seems a problem, that there are only two tours a week, this is a must-go place. The guide, a scholar whose name I did not ask, was fantastic! She is a specialist in the history of the castle and the time of British...More

Walked along the Cami de Cavel tracks from S'Algar to Castillo de San Felipe. The guide was a university lecturer who brought the place to life with descriptions of the seige of the castle. The history of the fort mirrored the islands past.

Access only by guided tour, and you must be there when gate opens at 10, or you don't go. Very interesting and knowledgeable English guide. Took over 2 hours.

One example of the extraordinary military history that Menorca represents. The scale is huge, the human effort to create it is awesome. Well worth a morning visit

Remains of a vast fortress, deliberately destroyed and replaced by La Mola. Visits only on Sundays and Thursdays, as accompanied tours starting 1000 hrs prompt. Much above ground has gone but fascinating tunnels remain and the guide we had was excellent. An essential visit to...More
