Top 4 Cathedrals in Menorca!

It is hardly surprising that on the beautiful island of Menorca you can find a number of churches, cathedrals and religious spots. Although many of the churches that you will see dotted around are small, they play an extremely important role in the lives of the locals. If you have accommodation in Menorca, there are a few spots that you simply can’t miss.

Ciutadella Cathedral

This mighty building is located in the island town of Ciutadella, and is arguably one of the most impressive pieces of architecture on the island. Originally, the cathedral was built on the site of an ancient mosque, however was badly damaged in the 16th century by a fire, so had to be remodelled. The building is filled with so much detail, be it the stone carvings or the Neo-Gothic canopy, the outcome is very impressive.

 

Santa Clara Church

A small group of nuns still live in this historical attraction in Ciutadella. The church has been destroyed on several occasions since it’s building, such as in 1558 in the Turkish raid, or during the Spanish Civil War. After being rebuilt, it still contains much of its former splendour, including its intricate wooden carvings, and is worth a trip out from your Menorca vacation villa.

Sant Francesc Church

This church is located in the island’s capital of Mahon. It is a very appealing building thanks to its white walls and Baroque facade. The interior of the church is just as attractive as the exterior thanks to detailed decoration and large gothic alter. The church can easily been seen as part of a tour of the city, and won’t take long to explore.

Sant Antoni Church

This is a very popular location for many of the island’s cultural events and it is a popular place of worship. It is worth seeing this church as part of a larger tour of the island from your Menorca villa.

#1. Talla
With stunning views of the bay on top of a steep hill, Talla offers beauty and delicious dishes! Their menu consists of Mediterranean, Spanish, and European cuisine, each one a work of art.

#2. Restaurante Pizzeria Da Giovanni
This Italian and Spanish restaurant not only offers an amazing view of the bay, but a stunning look at the muralla medieval, or medieval wall. Though the restaurant itself is simple, the views and delicious food more than compensate for the mall-style dining area. They offer many traditional Spanish and Italian dishes but are best known for their paellas and tapas.

#3. La Blava
This former fishing house is on the beach, giving you one of the best beach views in Costa Brava! The style of the house is decidedly Mediterranean with a hint of Greece and features an open, yet intimate atmosphere that you are sure to enjoy.

They bring to light the essence of the Mediterranean diet through vegetables, rice, fish, and olive oil mixed in creative and delicious ways.

#4. Tapas del Mar
Traditional Mediterranean cuisine pairs with gorgeous views of the Costa Brava sea and mountains in Tapas del Mar. The food comes from family recipes that the chefs want to share with you so that you will hopefully enjoy them as much as their families always have. The chefs welcome you personally, and the restaurant itself is intimate, modern, and beautiful. They use local produce and try to keep their meals simple yet absolutely delicious. You are certain to enjoy any meal here and you’ll probably want to try them all!

Now that you’ve satisfied your eyes and your stomach, you can return to your gorgeous Costa Brava holiday rental for a quiet, relaxing evening.
