Tourism office: Pl. Explanada, 40

Highlights: the beaches. Menorca is said to have a less well developed infrastructure and road network as Mallorca, but this makes the island more unexplored by tourists and has preserved better its landscape. The market at the 'Plaza de la Explanada' in Mahón is an interesting spot. Also the weekly open-air market on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Celebrations: 'Festes de Gràcia', on September 7th and 8th. The 'Colçada' and the 'Jaleo', medieval horse riding events trough the narrow city streets, 'San Juan' and 'San Pedro', on the 23rd and 29th of June.
