On the western coast of Menorca, Ciutadella was once the island’s capital and remains its religious centre and focal point of much of its culture. With a beautiful port and an abundance of medieval architecture, it’s a great place to visit if you’re interested in history. With its old quarter, the 14th-century Ciutadella de Menorca cathedral, cobbled streets and winding alleyways, Ciutadella holidays offer an atmospheric experience full of culture and history.
It's ideal for those who want to have a coastal break with activities in the town as well. If you’re looking to head to the beach, holidays to Ciutadella offer plenty nearby, particularly in the Los Delfines area just west of the city, where many of western Menorca’s most popular beaches can be found. And as the second biggest city in the island, Ciutadella has no shortage of bars, cafés and restaurants and nightlife.
Just outside the city, Lithica is an impressive former sandstone quarry. An excellent place to walk around, you should also ensure you explore its gorgeous gardens.
