We found this place both visually astonishing and diverse. I would recommend spending at least 1.5 hours to really appreciate both the old and the new sections and the various walking routes. The place is both a nicely designed botanic garden and an impressive set...More

If you're told "let's go and visit an ancient quarry" maybe you don't expect too much. WRONG! this is really a special place, very easy to reach from the "ronda", the road around Ciutadela. Be careful -the official name is Pedreres de s'Hostal, not Lithica....More

Out of the ordinary sightseeing roads for menorca visitors. After all calas and archaeological parks you would be happy to see something so special. Believe me this is a place you don't want to miss on.

No as Espai says there is not cafe, and another thing to be aware of is that there are no toilets apart from those at the entrance.
