“Interesting, educational , funny, different kind of tour. Something you must do one night .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

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 .
If you have problems with your knees and back , I do not recommend it.
Every year they add a new act .
Don't miss it.

“It's all underground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

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.
