Cathedrals and Churches

The medieval Cathedral Basilica de Menorca looms over the busy town of Ciutadella and is a pristine example of the island's religious sites that remains important today. Beyond this, there are various more quaint and quieter churches around Menorca whose buildings and relics preserve the tranquillity and heritage of the island.


Set in an old and ornate monastery, Museu de Menorca is a great start for learning about the island's past, with exhibitions spanning from the prehistoric to the present day giving you a feel for its heritage. Similarly, Museum Diocesa de Menorca is host to a range of interesting artefacts and arts unique to the area.

Eating Out

Whether you are searching for affordable, home-style cooking or fine dining, there is an abundance of eateries where you can explore the delights of Spanish cuisine, whatever your budget. Scoff on the sweet tasting churros by the beach or tuck into tapas in the evening, but be sure to get a flavour of the island's specialities.

Places of Interest

Torre d’en Galmes is a remarkable settlement site predating Roman times and therefore rich in history, and just one of the many archaeological sites scattered around the island; others include Torralba and Talayot de Dalt. For a wonderful exhibition of Menorca's Roman past don't miss Ecomuseum Dap de Cavalleria.
