Ciutadella Marina, Cathedral left of centre & Town Hall on right
Ciutadella at night
Menorca's old capital is a fascinating blend of medieval and Arab flavours, which also has a rich architectural heritage. It is well placed for exploring the island’s famous archaeological remains.
The nightlife here is centred around the restaurants and bars in the harbour area, where long lazy evening meals evolve into late nights. The city centre has a selection of intimate tapas bars that will give you a real taste of Spanish socialising. If you like to dance your nights away, there are a couple of late night discos to keep your feet tapping until the early hours.
