Recommended activities in Ciutadella de Menorca

We recommend that you lose yourself walking through the narrow streets in the historical centre of Ciutadella; that you relax having a coffee and reading the paper on a terrace of any of the bars; that you visit some of the museums, churches and palaces; or that you make the most of the extensive commercial offer to do your shopping.

If you do want to go shopping, it'll be useful for you to know that the normal business hours are from 10:00 to 13:30 h and from 17:00 a 20:00 h, Monday to Friday, whilst on Saturdays the establishments are only open in the morning. However, during the summer season or sales (which normally take place from the second week of July until the second week of September), it is not unusual to find businesses that extend their opening times or that don't close on Saturday afternoons. All commercial establishments, such as bars and restaurants, accept major credit cards. Likewise, the normal working hours of financial bodies are from 8:00 to 14:00 h, Monday to Friday.

Please remember that it may be difficult to find somewhere to eat after 16:00 h as many restaurants close their kitchens at this time to open them later for the evening meal, staying open until midnight or later, given that in Spain, it is customary to have your evening meal very late. We advise you to book your table at your chosen restaurant as occasionally it is not easy to find a table, especially during the months of July and August.

Menurka Hostel surroundings, Ciutadella de Menorca

Ciutadella and its surroundings offer many options for those who want to forget about the car for a few days. You can start your outing on foot from the Plaza Ses Palmeres and continue to the Calle Ses Voltes, so-called because of the strange arches that line it, underneath which are housed a great number of businesses, cake shops, bars and restaurants. Following this street you reach he Plaza de la Catedral, a Gothic church built in the XIV century, in whose square can be found the Tourist Information Office. Leaving the Cathedral behind, we arrive at the Plaza Es Born, surrounded by the most emblematic stately homes of Ciutadella, next to the Town Hall, the theatre and the post office building.

From the Plaza Es Born, which the pedestrian can clearly identify by the statue in the centre erected in memory of the disaster that occurred during the Turkish invasion in 1558, you can follow the path by the Plaza des Pins, the lungs of the city, and go around the old quarters following the avenues that form the "Sa Contramurada". This is situated where, in former times, the city walls were located which surrounded the old city, and which today have become a major commercial and financial area of the city. You can also choose to descend one of the slopes that take you to the docks of the cosy Port of Ciutadella, where you can taste the best tapas in its fishermen's bars or delight in eating the delicious island fish and seafood that its restaurants offer.
