Although there are different archaeological sites in the island that speak of that past, some of them stand out for their historic importance, like Naveta des Tudons (between Ciutadella and Ferreries) or the settlements of Talati, Trepuco and Son Catlar.
- Las Taulas: Las Taulas are Menorca´s native talaiotic elements, so they are worth a visit. Their most representative elements are the Torre Trencada and Torre Llafuda. It is a perfect family plan for you to discover the historic side of the island.
- Monte Toro: Menorca’s highest peak is a hill right in the middle of the island, in the charming municipality of Es Mercadal. There you will find one of the most venerated sacred places by its people: the sanctuary of El Toro´s Virgin, patron of Menorca.
- Santa Agueda castle: according to history, this castle located in the municipality of Ferreries was the last abode of the Arabs in Menorca, before Alfonso III recovered the island for the Crown of Aragon. This is one of the most rural and traditional areas of Minorca, so its landscapes deserve more than a picture.
