We strolled up to the towers one evening, very peaceful. Low level lights all the way to the tower. Lovely views and if you go on a clear night with no moon it is possible to see the milky way.

A lump at the headland of Fornells - worth a stroll (steep but short - good tiled path) - great views. Not open.

Firstly, can I say I haven't been in the Tower - my review is based on the surrounding area. It's well worth the walk up as the views are incredible. But it's worth going to see the Tower and rambling around the area. Just watch your step in places and you'll be fine :-)

It's quite a steep walk in the heat, but the views are worth it. We walked up and saw quite a lightshow at night, when there was a thunderstorm in Marseilles

We found this when driving around the north of Menorca. It is understated but quite interesting especially for learning about some of the British occupation of the island. The tower information is on boards in Spanish so obtain an English version leafelt at the desk. The spiral staircase to the top is rather tight and could be somewhat claustrophobic for... More

Beautiful Fornells, What more can I say! Just love the area and the island. Fornells tower at the end of the bay gives you views beyond belief, just a stunning coastline.

We accidentally came across Fornell whilst driving around the island. We decided to stop off and walk up to the tower. We had our 5 and 2 year old with us. They quite enjoyed climbing over the hill below. Was disappointed you had to pay to go inside, so didn't bother.

We visited the Tower on a hot day in June but it was well worth the walk up. The small entrance charge to go inside was more than justified and the history of the Tower is fascinating. The views from the top were superb.
