We visited La Mola back in June as part of holiday to the island of Menorca. It was well worth the visit. You can park close to the entrance and then walk through the gates to the arrival desk on the right hand side. We decided to pay for the hand held audio guides and we are glad we did... More

If your idea of a good day out is strolling around a historic site then they don't get much bigger than this. A huge relatively well preserved fortress with many interesting views, if not such an interesting history of its own. It was built over 25 years in response to French and British interests at the time but was militarily... More

An interesting place to visit but as you might expect very limited for those with mobility issues. Rather like going back into an episode of Hornblower, the fort covers a very large area and in addition to the entry fee of €8 per person it is possible to hire a Buggy which seats 4 which makes exploring (especially if it...

We were staying Mahon and got a water taxi from the Port (12 euros return and you get a 10% discount to go in). La Mola is very interesting and you can go round at your own pace. The Queens powder room is staging a flat blade exhibition and was good. One part there's a long corridor with arch doorways... More

We bought a joint ticket with another attraction which was fantastic but la mola, it was quite different. The young lady at the entrance took our tickets showed us a map very quickly which direction to head in and that was it. She spoke English and when asked if there were recorded information devices she said no even when I... More

Such a vast and amazing place, we were blown away at the architecture that was put into building it. We did fort Marlborough a few days before and had the audio headset which was really useful, unfortunately when we asked at la mola the lady said they didn't do it even though when walking around it was quite obvious they...

A great way to spend a half day strolling through the various historical buildings. It is very well maintained, great audio guides as well as private tours. Also Vickers gun is worth the extra trek as dips the tunnels

We fetched up outside La Mola on a dull grey day in 2013, we found it intriguing and decided that we would return this year. Fortunately the sun shone and the wind was light and we had a fantastic time pottering round the fort which is truly amazing. We did not realise that they do tickets reduced for seniors so... More
