One example of the extraordinary military history that Menorca represents. The scale is huge, the human effort to create it is awesome. Well worth a morning visit

Visited castell de sant felip today with my wife and my two boys 4 and 1. What a great place the tour guide was really informative and did her talks in Spanish and English. We all had a great time in the tunnels and my 4 year old loved it! Defiantly worth a vist!.

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.

Interesting, educational , funny, different kind of tour. Something you must do one night before dinner. The guides know very well what they are doing. They explain and interact with participants all the time during the walking inside San Felipe. It's a representation of MENORCA history and what happened years ago during the conquest .

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.
