Over the years on our holidays to Menorca we have stopped off at Monte Toro several times, and we have also enjoyed visiting. Known as El Toro or 'The Bull' in Catalan, rising 358 metres above the surrounding countryside, Monte Toro is Menorca's highest point and is a perfect place for panoramic views of the island. It casts a shadow... More

Pros: -Plentiful free parking -Picnic areas -Great views -Telescopes (€1) -Photo signs indication main sights -Monastery - entry by donation Cons: -Expensive bar/restaurant. Charges non-customers to use toilet. -Numerous masts with aerials and dishes attached spoils the aesthetics and views. Notes: take binoculars, food and drink.

Great location atop highest point in Menorca. Fabulous views and good restaurant. The monestary is especially worth a visit and also a sit down and meditate.

Just come back from a trip up to Monte Toro. The road is very steep and windy and thankfully we had a hire car! Once we got there, the views were absolutley stunning and well worth the trip. We were lucky and there was only one coach there when we were. You get a feeling of peace and serenity there... More

Beautiful go on a clear sunny day and you can see the whole of the island. You do need a car to get there but it is worth it. Nice restaurant at the top and not expensive.

We hired a car and decided to visit the highest point on Menorca. We realised that we had visited many years ago. The views are spectacular and the cafe is very reasonable - €5 for 2 coffees and a Sprite (bearing in mind the tourist attaraction that this is). The church is dark but there was a man playing some... More

This is the highest point on the island, we drove to the top, its a very steep windy road, well done to those we saw cycling and walking up, I could not have done that in the August heat. Views from the top are spectacular, you can see the whole island and across to Majorca, worth the trip up if... More

From the highest point on Menorca you have a magnificent view over the whole island. Certainly worth a visit. Good parking area.

Early start, amazing views of island-can see for miles and miles-mobile masts a slight blight on the view. But hey, what's this, coaches on the way up-waaaahhh. Time to go down....

This is the highest point on Menorca and is a fabulous vantage point that allows you to view the whole of the island on the short walk around the accessible parts of the perimeter, It does get busy (we were here last year, later in the summer and later in the day). The other benefits of the absence of other... More
