Ciutadella de Menorca

Ciutadella, largely dominated by 17th- and 18th-Century architecture and known as an excellent strolling venue, is a sunbathed settlement with a large obelisk adorning its Old Town Square. The Medieval lanes converge in front of the Town Hall, representing a revamped Arab citadel, and the 14th-Century cathedral, still bearing the traces of an earlier mosque, plus the nearby Palace of Salort. The resort's major attraction, however, remains its vast sandy beaches, particularly the coastal areas of Mitjana, Trabaluger and Galdana. Sunbathers are all over the place, freely indulging in the town's major pastime. Ciuadella's vicinity also encompasses the stunning Nature Reserves of S'Albufera des Grau, Cap de Favaritx and I'lla d'en Colomi, being famous for their excellent bird-watching opportunities. The resort's scenic port can be best viewed from the back of the Town Hall, with fishing boats bobbing in the placid waters and larger ships carving their way towards the shore.
