  • Today we went here after seeing 5 star reviews on trip advisor. The weather wasn't great so we thought the place sounded interesting. To start 5€ each I felt was a little steep for what it really was....  more »
  • Impressive! This Quarry has amazing proportions. Deep, it covers also a nice surface. The place has been converted into two parts: the mineral part, which traces the history of the quarry operations, the plant part, which has transformed the old garden extraction pits... really a nice walk. Not to be missed.

  • Situated outside Ciutadella, is a place of interesting to see, both for what they have done with the modern quarry, as what there is of the antiugua quarry, turned almost into a botanical garden

  • This is an old quarry turned into a garden. You have to explore and find the old garden hidden away in the quarry. You have to pass through a small stone archway to find it. It is usually a little cooler in the garden. there are fruit trees - pomegranate, apricot and others. There also kestrels nesting, other gardens, and sculptures and a maze. If there are any musical events on it's definitely worth making the time to come and see local singers or choirs singing in the old quarry gardens.
  • until i read the pamphlet, i was convinced that parts of this were the dwellings of a pre-historic Iberic tribe. very interesting indeed ... the depth, the angles, the labyrinthine layout. well worth a visit. you need a good 1.5 hrs at least. a little more grounds maintenance wouldn't hurt, but not a show stopper. there are good vibes here. 5€ gets you in. kids 10 and under are free.
  • A great greab area with lots of gardens and great views. It is, without a doubt, one of the most unique places in Menorca
  • It's different. Planting in summer can be a little sparse because of the heat, but the scale of the quarry is impressive.
  • Very cool, even for little children
