There is an array of prehistoric evidence of past citizens who originally inhabited the island of Menorca and other islands in the Mediterranean, and is therefore a great place for history buffs.
Ciutadella still retains much of the Moorish influence and has a quaint port encircled by narrow streets. Beautiful old palaces, churches and noble buildings can also be seen today in the city centre, which were once surrounded by large defence walls. As you wander around, you will also find the Naveta des Tudons; the taules and talaiots, the caves and the prehistoric villages like the ones at Cala Morell or Son Catlar.
The quaint narrow harbour is a delightful postcard scene, perfect for an idle afternoon lunch. One of best places to view the harbour is from the main square. On one side of the square is the town hall, opposite the fabulous 'Palace Torre Saura'. The Fiesta de San Juan, which takes place here at the end of June, is not to be missed.
