Ciutadella

Ciutadella

ciutadella

The municipality of Ciutadella covering the western third of the island is the largest in Menorca. From spectacular sunsets to the oldest pre-historic monuments in Menorca, Ciutadella has something for everyone.

The town is steeped in history with a rich mix of architectural styles bearing witness to the different eras of its past. Ciutadella is perhaps most famous for the annual Fiestas of Sant Joan, the summer festivities which culminate with the colourful jaleo.
Various resorts are located on the west and south coasts offering a full range of watersports and entertainment options. Founded by the Carthaginians, Ciutadella remained the capital of Menorca until 1772, and remains the ecclesiastical capital to this day.

Ciutadella has a rather grand air with many elegant historical buildings, churches and large squares.
The old town is packed with impressive architecture including a gothic cathedral and several palaces belonging to the noble families, some of which are now open to the public.
The Plaça des Born is the heart of the town. From there a series of narrow cobbled alleys, many of which are too narrow for cars to pass, hide an array of stylish boutiques and fashionable cafés and restaurants.

Steps from the main square lead down to the quaint port, where locals moor their traditional llaüts (fishing boats) and lively restaurants and bars line one side of the harbour.
The inner end of the harbour is the location of the late night bars and clubs and a craft market is set up on the steps at night.


West of Ciutadella: Cales Piques, Los Delfines, Torre del Ram & Cala’n Blanes
To the west of the town, the resorts of Cales Piques, Los Delfines and Cala en Blanes have been built around a series of narrow rocky inlets (Cales Piques, Cala en Forcat, Cala en Brut and Cala’n Blanes). There are tiny beaches at the end of the inlets and flat, rock platforms with built-in swim ladders which provide ample sunbathing and swimming opportunities.These resorts merge into one another and offer a number of hotels and numerous detached villas spread inland.

South Coast: Cap d’Artrutx, Cala’n Bosch & Son Xoriguer
The lighthouse at Cap d’Artrutx marks the south-western most point of the island, with excellent views out to sea and along the south coast. The area around the lighthouse has been developed with some attractive modern-style villas, a commercial centre and dive shop.  The resorts of Cala’n Bosch and Son Xoriguer again have become one large well-developed tourist area.  One of the more recent developments on the island and built around two good beaches, these resorts are among the smartest and most modern on the island with an excellent selection of facilities and activities to choose from.

Southwest of Ciutadella: Son Carrio, Santandria & Cala Blanca
Cala Blanca, Son Carrio and Santandria are found 2 – 3km southwest of Ciutadella.  The three resorts almost merge into one.  With easy access to the beaches, Cala Blanca and Santandria both have white sand and crystal clear water. These resorts are peaceful and ideal for couples and families with children with all the necessary facilities to ensure everyone has a wonderful holiday.  Children’s playground, tennis courts, medical centre, chemist, diving centres, supermarkets, bars and restaurants.  Cala Blanca has a main shopping area offering a range of activities & amusements. Here there are concerts organised on Sundays at sunset. The two beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag and have free parking.
