What to see Let's start by exploring the past. The evidence suggests there were human settlements in Ciutadella in the year 2000 B.C. You'll see the proof in megalithic monuments like the 'taulas', 'talayots' and 'navetas' (funeral monuments). Once you've discovered its origins, you'll find this is a wonderful city for strolling. Es Born, the old parade ground from the medieval city, is in the centre of the old quarter and the site of the Town Hall, the Salort Palace and the Vivó Palace with its red façade. The cathedral and the Olives Palace are also in the centre, and behind the Town Hall there's an observation point offering excellent views of the port. Leaving the centre, the Bastió de sa Font bastion is one of the five that form part of the city's old defensive walls. Beaches and nature You're sure to cherish your memories of the beaches in Minorca. Near Ciutadella you'll find the coves of Cala Mitjana, Cala Trabalúger and Cala Galdana. Did you know that the whole of the island of Minorca has been declared a Biosphere Reserve? That's why it's an excellent place for scuba-diving, sailing, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding… Gastronomy The lobster stew is perhaps one of the most delicious dishes. Other specialities include roast cuttlefish and 'tumbet' (vegetable casserole).
