    Top of the island...
    Up a winding road from Es Mercadal and the views are superb. Small church, a statue of Christ, small shop and a reasonable cafe / restaurant. Nice ambience and worth it for the great views of the island alone.

    Back again for the amazing views
    We drove up here to re-visit after many years away from Menorca and were again taken by the breathtaking views and peaceful environment. We looked around the church and courtyard areas, before having breakfast at the cafe. Our ham and cheese sandwiches were lovely - all fresh and tasty, especially the crusty bread - and coffees. There is a gift and craft shop too, which is well worth a perusal. There's no charge for entry to Monte Toro, and the steep, winding drive up to it is quite an experience. Worth a visit.

    Absolutely worth a visit. Fabulous views, fantastic cafe and shop. The church and the courtyard are stunning. Beautiful plants. We were there for about an hour at least. The children really enjoyed looking around. The views are spectacular.

    Best views of Menorca
    We did not get the chance to visit last time we were in Menorca and so glad we did this time. The views from the top are fantastic and you can see the whole of the island and beyond. The restaurant is a good place for refreshments although we only had a drink. Would highly recommend.

    Amazing Panoramic Viewpoint
    Monte Toro is one of the best places to visit on Menorca. The mountain is only 358 metres tall, but can be seen from many angles on the island like its just calling you to go to the top. Monte Toro has a winding road all the way to the top where you can find a car park, monastery and a cafe and gift shop. The Monastery is open to the public and a very nice looking building on top of this mountain. The cafe also does a range of food from small bites to large dinners. The gift shop is also quite sizeable. The views from the top are amazing. You can see most of the island. Most notable places you can see is the local town of Es Mercadel, the seaside town of Fornells and the Cape Cavalleria Lighthouse and its peninsula. This astonishing viewpoint just cannot be missed.

It's the place to go to view all of the island and put its shape and size in perspective. You can also see Majorca

Good views from the top on a food day. Unfortunately it was hazy but worth going up. There was a wedding in the chapel at the top and a sanctuary. At the summit is a Statue of Christ.

Monte Toro, is the tallest hill of the island of Menorca.

We took a bus from Ciutadella to Es Mercadal (#01 to Mao) and then walked up to the top of El Toro. The journey up takes about 60 minutes despite being just around 2 miles, as the gradient is quite steep in places. The good news is that the walk down only takes 40 minutes.

At the summit, try to ignore the satellite dishes and phone masts (which is difficult, I know) and take on board the wonderful panoramic views across the island. The Statue of Christ is impressive and the church is well worth a visit. We were grateful that there was also a bar/restaurant on site where we could have a beer before the return to catch the bus in Es Mercadal.

Amazing views of the whole of the island. We travelled as 4 adults in our little hire car to find a great spacious car park at the top.

Great views of the island. Lovely little church at the top - which is so serene and peaceful.

Fantastic little cafe with also great views to drop for a cold drink & ice cream. Toilets accessible from cafe for customers or for a small fee using the turnstile.

Would recommend visiting.
