The Fortress of Isabel II was built between the years 1850 and 1875; it is located in one of the most beautiful spots on the island of Minorca and constituiting one of the best examples of late XIXth Century military architecture. This is a huge historic fort, open to the public, situated at the mouth of the harbour of Mahon. Guided tours are available (with prior booking) but you can walk freely with handsets. Itis well organised.
