Santa María de Menorca Cathedral: built in the Catalan Gothic style, the cathedral known as Menorca Cathedral was built by order of King Alfonso III of Aragon after the conquest of the island from the Muslims in 1287. The temple was not constituted as a cathedral until more than 500 years later, in 1795. It can be found in the town of Ciudadela in the west of the island.
Torre d’en Galmés visitors' centre; this is one of the most important prehistoric centres in the Balearic Islands. In fact, it is believed that this Talayotic settlement, whose period of splendour was between 1300 BC and the conquest by the Romans, was in a strategically superior position to other settlements in the surrounding area. The visit is organised around the visitors' centre and the settlement itself. It is located near the town of Alayor.
Cala Macarella: just outside the town of Ciudadela, you'll find two of Menorca's most famous coves at more or less the same distance, Turqueta and Macarella. To swim in the latter, bear in mind that you may have to pay at the nearest car park, depending on the time of day. The turquoise colour of these waters and the sailing boats that dock a few dozen metres from the shore are one of the island's most recognisable snapshots.
Cala Mitjana and its little sister, Mitjaneta, are separated by the Camí de Cavalls, which connects them both. This is one of the best known beaches in the south of the island and it is also very close to another one such as Galdana. Easily accessible - you only have to walk for about 10 minutes - this beach is well protected by the cliffs, which shelter it from the tramontana wind.
Cala Turqueta: as mentioned above, one of the most renowned coves by locals and visitors alike who decide to visit the island of Menorca. An unspoilt environment and a must-see located in the southern part of the island. You don't need to go to the Caribbean to visit beaches as spectacular as this one. You'll find it hidden among deep green pine trees. The nearest car park is a 10-minute walk away.
