This was our 4th visit to Menorca and we had never previously visited Monte Toro so we decided it was about time we did. Wow!! What a fantastic place to visit. The views over Menorca are spectacular. The monastary is beautiful and there is also a lovely little gift shop selling some beautiful things. Then there is the cafe where... More

Visiting Mount Toro was part of a Thomas Cook excursion - Discover Menorca. It is approached by a very winding road but once up the top the views were sensational. The day we went we had a lovely clear sunny sky so we were able to see for miles. There is a lovely chapel at the top as well as... More

It was interesting, but very commercial. You can see for miles as its the highest point of Menorca, so well worth a visit, parking is easy, must have a car though

If you are going to Menorca, you must visit Monte Toro. We went as part of a Thomas Cook 'Island Tour' excursion. Very spiritual place, well worth a visit.

A long, windy, steep road up, and we were a little disappointed when we got there!! Not much to see, apart from the views from the top. Not much access to the monastery, but a really nice gift shop, and an OK café. Go on a clear day, and you can see for miles.

Incredible views and very interesting history, Monte Toro is a must-visit when in Menorca. Unfortunately, we visited on a cloudy day, which spoilt our pictures more than the views, but it is a breathtaking place! You can see far off the island of Menorca and see the beautiful blue sea that surrounds it. There are a couple of tourist shops,... More

Even if you are not religious, or believe in a different faith, to visit this church at the highest point is a wonder. So beautiful the scenery the architecture is a wonder. However if you are traveling with people who do not like heights then be warned the road up is twisty with edge side views. Fantastic well worth the... More

We drove up from Es Mercadal (there are signposts) along a long, windy road uphill to Monte Toro. My boyfriend described the drive as "interesting" with lots of hairpin corners. I would advise to get there early - on the day we visited it had been raining so I think a few people were put off, but it quickly got... More

Although only 342m. high, Monte Toro still affords the visitor stunning 360 degree views over the island. The drive up to the summit is easy with free parking at the top. There is a Sanctuary and Church that is well worth a visit as well as a café & restaurant with adjoining gift shop. The café had a good choice... More

We drove there. Road perfect. Don't take any notice of people who tell you any different. Wide well tarmacced the slope up was not steep. It's only around 1000 feet up. Car park at top. Good cafe toilets shops and a few phone masts. The views very good. Worth going once.
