It also boasts a number of paintings and artworks from the 19th and 20th centuries.
One of Mahon’s most popular tourist attractions, the Church of Santa Maria (built in 1287 and then rebuilt around 1748-1772) is also worth visiting. Highlights include a spectacular organ, featuring more than 3,000 pipes. Concerts and recitals are held here throughout the year.
Just 4km from Mahon is Talati de Dalt. The Talayotic remains here represent one of Menorca’s most important pre-historic sites and are definitely worth adding to your sightseeing list.
