I drive up Monte Torro every year, purely for the views as the religious aspect doesn't interest me but the panoramic island views are spectacular. There's a decent enough shop with various bits and bobs & refreshment facilities but the main purpose for me this that view.

From the top of Monte Toro (the highest point on Menorca) there is an amazing view over the whole of the island. The views truly are breathtaking. There is a small Catholic church at the top and a cafe. There's not much for the kids, but its well worth the trip. There is ample parking at the top, but there... More

From the top of Monte Toro you have an amazing 360 degree view of Menorca! Well worth a visit if you can brave the drive up the mountain.

What a superb view, and a splendid church with great history. Grab a coffee, take in the views with a cigar or two, and smile. If there is a downside then it is having to pay to use the loo, 1 Euro and 50 Cents! The staff in the cafe are usually board, but that does not stop the excellent... More

The only 'mountain' in Minorca. Situated centrally in the middle of the island it provides spectacular views more miles in all directions. The winding road is steep so drive carefully. At the summit is a beautiful old church and museum and gift shop. Take some time to explore it and take lots of pictures. A visit to Monte Torro could... More

Would highly recommend visiting Monte Torro as the coast-to-coast views were fantastic. Parking is free, as is entry to the church on the mountain. The church is a small affair and was built when the Monks saw a vision of Virgin Mary on the mountain. It is not particularly grand nor appears to have any remarkable history. A small shop... More

Amazing place. Highest point on the Island. Catholic church at the top, with gift shop and cafe. We hired a car to get here. Great photos to be taken.

Good road to the top, glad we were not walking. Wonderful views of the island particularly the north. the church is peachful and beautiful, the cafe provided coffee and ice creams, the shop plenty of tourist memorabilia. Pity the historical shop was closed as we wanted more information as we wanted more historical information.
