This is a museum housed in the ruins of the Fort Marlborough. I strongly recommend the renting of the audio guides (they’re not expensive and are a mobile phone) as the museum’s story telling relies upon the use of TV screens and the audio. Without...More

For over 15 years we've missed this site, mind, it's easy to pass by the entrance. But it is so vividly interpreted through video and verbal explanation. Really enjoyed.

This fort is built into the rock with many side tunnels and a main circular tunnel. It was blasted and dug out of the rock during British occupation (on and off) of Menorca. This makes for a very interesting visit and a fairly unique site....More
