Decided to visit on our last day in Ciutadella and was not disappointed. We walked from the city, took us about 45 minutes but bearable in cooler October weather - in the summer probably not so! Spent a good 2 hours here but definitely could...More

A real surprise to find this still-working quarry as a tourist destination. On the outskirts of Ciutadella [no bus service, but within walking distance of the town, and about 10 Euro for a taxi [3 people and mobility scooter]. A large area of old quarry,...More

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

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.
