Let us not also forget the visit to the church of Santa María, whose interior houses a monumental organ with great historical value and excellent sound. One of the oldest doorways of the city wall called Pont de Sant Roc is preserved in the Bastión square. With an English clock from the 18th century, the city hall presents itself as another of the remarkable buildings in the town.
Located in the Costa Deià, the theatre is another remarkable venue to see, boasting to be the first opera theatre constructed in Spain.
Given that it is the capital, Mahon presents itself as a city rich in cultural activities. We recommend visiting the Museum of Menorca located in the convent of San Francisco.
History says that Mahón was founded in 205 BC by Magón, the brother of Hannibal the Carthaginian general. Throughout many centuries, the city faced different invasions–Romans, Vandals, Muslims and Aragoneses. It was also ransacked many times; in 1535, Red Beard the pirate razed the city and enslaved a great portion of the inhabitants. However, it was not until the 18th century, when English rule was in place, that the city began to undergo important developments. For this reason, Mahón still maintains an air of English colonial times.
