WHAT TO DO IN MENORCA

What to do in Menorca

Ciutadella de Menorca, a journey through time

Located on the western end of the island, Ciutadella is the largest municipal area on Minorca. The old centre of Ciutadella is a small fortified town, hence its name, which means “citadel”, where Moorish heritage can be observed in the intricate and cheerful streets of the city centre, which are full of shops, terraces and coffee shops.

Millenarian tradition, culture and leisure

Every corner of the town has its history: the Plaça des Born square, the Town Hall, “Ses Voltes” (the Arches), “Es Molí” (the Windmill) or the several Stately Palaces. Ciutadella also shows its Episcopal nature. Its main referent is the Cathedral of Minorca, which is the only medieval temple on Minorca. The Santa Clara Convent and the Sant Crist Church are also to be highlighted, as well as the Seminary and its Diocesan Museum.

Only 100 metres from the Hotel Menorca Patricia, you must not miss the charming Port of Ciutadella, a typically Mediterranean spot, full of restaurants and bars to enjoy a lively night out. On summer nights the streets going down the port turn into crafts markets.

500 metres from the Hotel Menorca Patricia you can visit the Sant Nicolau Castle, on the north coast of the mouth of the port, an old defence tower with an octagonal shape. From this point you can gaze out over sea to the west with views of the neighbouring island of Majorca in the background. Approximately 5 Km from Ciutadella heading north, we can enjoy one of the most romantic sunsets at the lighthouse of Punta Nati. Then, at virtually the same distance but towards Maó, we find the Naveta des Tudons, the most iconic pre-historic monument in Minorca.

Festival of Sant Joan

Ciutadella is definitely worth a visit during the Festival of Sant Joan, its local saint patron, held on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of June. Every year the city explodes in joy and celebration, following the spectacular horses and horsemen throughout the festivities.

This celebration has religious origins that date back over 500 years. In recent decades, its popularity has risen to an extreme that the visitors’ affluence is massive. Therefore, some good tips include: plan the visit in advance, once here dress comfortably and pay the highest respect to the horses.

Musical events

The island also offers first-class musical events, such as the Festival de Música d’Estiu (summer music festival) of Ciutadella and Mahón or the International Jazz Festival. However, if you prefer classical music, you could visit the morning organ concerts given at Santa Maria Church in Maó and Els Socors Church in Ciutadella.

Throughout the summer in Ciutadella, several street events are organised as well as on some beaches, such as theatre, concerts or performances geared to children.

Camí de Cavalls

Other excellent options include: horseback riding through the green woods, a visit the zoological centre to discover our local animal breeds, enjoying the best equestrian shows, a visit to the most emblematic fortresses in Minorca or even renting a boat to enjoy the island from a different perspective.

The Hotel Menorca Patricia will be happy to give you good advice and assist you with your bookings.

Southern coast

The southern coast is made up of white sandy areas with calm crystal-clear waters surrounded by groves of green pine trees. Amongst the unspoilt coves, there are some of remarkable beauty: Macarella, Cala en Turqueta, Binigaus, Son Saura, Cala Mitjana or Es Talaier. Some of the most important beaches for those who desire more amenities are Cala Galdana, Son Bou, Sant Tomàs and Son Xoriguer.

Northern coast

The northern coast has a more rugged appearance due to the erosion caused by the north winds on the coast. The sand is coarser and darker, and its vegetation is not as lush as in the south. Nevertheless, if we want to discover truly unspoilt treasures, we can visit Cala Algaiarens (La Vall), Cala Pregonda, Cala Pilar, Binimel·là or Cavalleria. On the north coast, there are not as many beaches with services as on the southern coast.

Boat trips

For those who love the sea, there is the option of boat trips that set off from Maó and Ciutadella and explore the Minorcan coast. Excursionists can visit unspoilt beaches at every stop and take a dip in their crystal-clear waters and partake in a delicious paella at lunchtime.
