Cala Mitjana in Menorca

3. Your Hiking Paths

Its routes, rural roads, trails, all of them crossing its small territory of only 702 km2, which, contrary to what we may think, is not completely flat because it is furrowed with ravines that break the landscape. Some of them, such as Algendar, reach almost 50m high walls, and all of them offer a floristic and fauna habitat of great interest that differs from the rest we can find on the island.

Highlight The Camí de Cavalls, which surrounds the entire island along the coast and is about 200 km long, and which can be accessed on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, often being able to observe the dry-walled walls, which "square" our field, and from which it is calculated there are more than 7 linear kilometers.

4. Your Story

Coveted and desired by many nations and peoples for its strategic position in the Mediterranean, halfway between Algiers and France, the island was Muslim, Greek, Roman, English, French, Spanish and that need for defense and protection have remained imposing fortresses, such as that of Isabel II, better known as La Mola, Fort Marlborough, the medieval walls of the Citadel, the Muslim castle of Santa Águeda, the defensive towers, or the ruins of the Castle of San Felipe, built around 1555 and considered in the eighteenth century as the largest fortification in Europe.
