The Menorcan Glories of Ciutadella & Cala Galdana

The town of Cala Galdana is a popular location of the Balaeric island of Menorca for the tourist visitors, who are looking for a peaceful location with both beach and evening entertainment.

It was originally, before the twon was built up with hotels, a small fishing village using the cove to be able to land the catch. There are still a few fishing vessels amonst the motorised boats, with the houses rising up the hillsides.


The historic town of Cuitadella is at the western end of Menorca, which though no longer the capital (this is now Mahon), it has remained the island's religious center as the Bishop refused to move. The festival of Saint John, its patron saint, takes place each year on 23 and 24 of June. The Cathedral of Menorca, located in the old quarter of Ciutadella, was built in 1287 on the foundation of an older mosque. (Source - Wikipedia).

In the port are ferries that go to other Balearic islands such as Mallorca, along with boats and larger yachts that tie up whilst on a tour of the mediterranean. It has many historic building including forts which are well worth exploring before finding a streetside cafe for local food and drink.
