What an amazing experience this was. I think we went too early as it was really hot! Sunset was at about 8pm, and we could have arrived at 6.30pm. We took a taxi from the centre square in Ciutadella. It cost us 7 euros one-way....More

€5 entrance fee but worth it, we spent about 90 minutes walking around the gardens and down into the quarry. As someone who has been visiting Menorca for many years I even found the example of the different types of garden walls interesting. Went in...More

I am not really one to spend long periods of time looking at plants and gardens. I did enjoy keeping an eye out for the lizards and tortoises here. I managed to get lost a few times before we even made our way to the...More
