Out of the all countries in southern Europe, Spain is the most visited one. With all its known coasts and beautiful islands it has always been at the top. Menorca is one of these famous islands; having its capital at Mahon, it amazes the tourists with its magnificent panoramas. The architectural style of this wonderful city has been strongly influenced by the British people who settled here for many years.
Placa de Espanada and other historical monuments
Placa de Espanada seems to be the place in Mahon which has everything a tourist looks for: bohemian cafes, intimate bars and relaxing parks can all be found there. Furthermore, around this place numerous shops and boutiques await shopping lovers. Add the breathtaking panoramas and the holiday in Menorca will transform into the best holiday ever. In the north east of this place is the old part of the city; the cobbled streets and the small houses are the main attraction here, but you should know that in the neighbourhood of this area you can also visit the church of Santa Maria which dominates Constitution Square. Beside its beautiful design, this church is an attraction also for its organ; tourists come here annually to enjoy the music and the relaxing environment. Another popular church in Mahon is Esglesia Del Carmen; its exterior is in huge contrast with its interior. Valuable paintings and artefacts are found here, so it is worth visiting. The great Museum Of Menorca is placed near to the San Francis church. Extremely unique and rare artefacts are kept inside this huge museum. Beginning with some old coins, maps and strange sculptures, they all are wonderful pieces to visit and admire. It is not only a historical place, but also the best place to have a good drink. Xoriguer Rum is produced close to the most popular museum in Menorca, so between visiting a church and entering an old museum, drink some tasty rum.
If you are not convinced yet by all these reasons that Menorca and its capital can be the perfect holiday destination, then you should know that the views here are unique in the world. The harbour is one of the largest in the world and the marina of Mahon contains many valuable ships. Around this harbour were built numerous villas, bars and restaurants, so there is nothing about getting bored while in Mahon, Menorca.
