Amazing views of the island of Menorca from this the highest point on the island. A religious site but with a café and shops. A truly great place to visit and the journey up and down is a treat.

In a clear day you can see the whole island. You can do paragliding with Joan for more adventure experience.

I'm afraid not. You can access it by car or bicycle, but I don't think you can walk up that road to the peak of the mountain. Apologies, hope this helps!
