  • Among the things to see in Minorca, other the splendid sea, recommend a visit to this village of about 2500/3000 years ago. It is easy to reach by car and offers a sea of emotions. The area is wide and tells us a lot about the degree of civilization of the peoples honey in pre-Christian. The village is on a hill overlooking the sea, hence controlled the arrival of enemies or strangers, among which the Carthaginians and the Romans who had control over the island's Government. Some buildings have been partially remittances stood to give the idea of how it was at that time the village. I recommend a visit even if it is hot, then the sea is there to throw for a refreshing dip!

  • An enormous site which has been well reconstructed in areas and salvaged from wild olive trees. We went at dusk and it was so wonderful being set on a hill and so extensive. There are caves and sanctu...  more »
  • I expected to ramble through a few rocks but it was so much more than that. First I came to the visitors centre where I read all about the ancient settlement dating back beyond 1500BC. I also saw some...  more »

  • Big site with lots to look at. Visitor centre is 700m in advance of main monument but worth stopping at to see the short film and looking at the displays; will help you appreciate the monument more. Only issue with this place is that the car park is very small. You'd be advised to go earlier or off peak to avoid difficulties.
  • Amazing historic ruins. Even my 6 Year old loved it.
  • Best archaeological site to visit on the island if you only have enough time to see one. It is only 3 EUR a person and you can wander freely amongst the stone structures. Picnic tables are scattered around the park so you can bring food. There are washrooms at the entrance. Park office closes in the afternoon so plan accordingly. A must see place to experience Menorca's heritage and culture.
  • A large site with a lot of ruins from the Talayotic days. It gives you a great sense of how they built communities, as well as some of the interesting architectural concepts. If you are visiting some of the sites on the island, then this is definitely a stop you need to do.
  • Very impressive and worth a visit!
