Remains of a vast fortress, deliberately destroyed and replaced by La Mola. Visits only on Sundays and Thursdays, as accompanied tours starting 1000 hrs prompt. Much above ground has gone but fascinating tunnels remain and the guide we had was excellent. An essential visit to help understand Menorca's military history.

The original castle is long gone, but you have something like 5 kilometers of tunnels hewn out of the rock by the British & French ... a whole underground city. Fascinating http://www.museomilitarmenorca.com/en/saint-philips-castle-minorca.php you have to go around with a guide on selected days and times. Check out the web link. A must for people who love history and military construction.
