Discovering Menorca: the Region of Es Castell


 
Travel & Tourism
The municipality of Es Castell is located on the south-east end of the island close to the capital city, Mahón. Although it is only a small region, it has a lot to offer in terms of personality. With a rich historical and cultural heritage and amazing coastal views, you’ll find everything you’d expect from this sublime Balearic gem when you stay in a Menorca villa!

A Military Upbringing

The town of Es Castell has a vast and complicated founding history, with its numerous incarnations over the centuries. When the British arrived in the area in 1771, they founded this municipality as Georgetown. When you wander through the town’s streets, be sure to admire the colonial architecture which harks back to this time. Placa de S’Esplanda, which is at the centre of town, used to be the military parade ground. This square now hosts the military museum, where you can explore the town’s history, as well as the town hall, an unmissable red building.

The island was conquered at the turn of the nineteenth century by the Spanish forces. They renamed the town Real Villa de San Carlos, also known as Villacarlos. The town’s military history is certainly worth exploring; you should not miss the opportunity to visit the ruins of the castle that was destroyed during the Spanish invasion, the Castillo de San Felip, which became the town’s namesake.

Go Harbourside

One of the best ways of exploring the town is on foot. Take your time strolling through the pedestrianised streets and admire the stunning architecture. You will wind past grand Georgian buildings and be led to the charming harbourside. If you have some spare time, pop into one of the many inlets of Cala Fonts and Cala Cord, which are lined with waterside shops.

Soak in the laid-back atmosphere and shop around the various handmade Menorcan specialities, including sandals and ceramics. You could even stop for a leisurely lunch at one of the town’s restaurants, cleverly built into caves in the harbour walls. During the day, you can watch the boats bobbing in the water as you sit and enjoy a meal in one of the friendly eateries. At night, the promenade is lit up and the harbourside turns into a magical little spot to share dinner and drinks. Fiesta de Sant Jaume One of the island’s greatest attractions is its famous annual festival. Held on the 14th and 15th of July, the Fiesta de Sant Jaume is one of the biggest and liveliest festivals in the area. Spreading across the island, from the town square to the various harbours of Es Castell, the festival includes an array of entertainment, including dancing horse parades, food and drink stalls, funfair rides and entertainment stalls. You can enjoy a spectacular music and fireworks display at its close before returning to your inviting Menorca villa.

Easy Access to Es Castell

Visiting the town of Es Castell is the perfect day trip. Situated just ten minutes away from the town centre, both our tranquil Menorca villas near Sait Lluis and our sprawling farmhouses in Saint Climent offer easy access to this historical little town.
