Menorca Travel Guide

by our Spain expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyThere are two sides to most things in Menorca (Minorca if youíre Catalan). In the west lies Ciudadela (or Ciutadella), the capital until the Middle Ages, filled with noble palaces and homes. In the east is Mahůn (or Maů), todayís first city filled with Georgian echoes of its heyday as a naval base in Nelsonís day. In between, the island is dotted with characteristic Bronze Age Taulas, T-shaped stone altars, and cone-shaped hives called Talayots. Linking all of these is the islandís main road which puts most attractions within a hourís drive. Shop for hand-made shoes, sup on fragrant lobster stews, sample the local gin (another British legacy), and choose any one of a hundred sheltered beaches.
