    Back again for the amazing views
    We drove up here to re-visit after many years away from Menorca and were again taken by the breathtaking views and peaceful environment. We looked around the church and courtyard areas, before having breakfast at the cafe. Our ham and cheese sandwiches were lovely - all fresh and tasty, especially the crusty bread - and coffees. There is a gift and craft shop too, which is well worth a perusal. There's no charge for entry to Monte Toro, and the steep, winding drive up to it is quite an experience. Worth a visit.

    Must visit! Absolutely spectacular views with a fab cafe.
    Absolutely worth a visit. Fabulous views, fantastic cafe and shop. The church and the courtyard are stunning. Beautiful plants. We were there for about an hour at least. The children really enjoyed looking around. The views are spectacular.

    Best views of Menorca
    We did not get the chance to visit last time we were in Menorca and so glad we did this time. The views from the top are fantastic and you can see the whole of the island and beyond. The restaurant is a good place for refreshments although we only had a drink. Would highly recommend.

    Amazing Panoramic Viewpoint
    Monte Toro is one of the best places to visit on Menorca. The mountain is only 358 metres tall, but can be seen from many angles on the island like its just calling you to go to the top. Monte Toro has a winding road all the way to the top where you can find a car park, monastery and a cafe and gift shop. The Monastery is open to the public and a very nice looking building on top of this mountain. The cafe also does a range of food from small bites to large dinners. The gift shop is also quite sizeable. The views from the top are amazing. You can see most of the island. Most notable places you can see is the local town of Es Mercadel, the seaside town of Fornells and the Cape Cavalleria Lighthouse and its peninsula. This astonishing viewpoint just cannot be missed.

    Well worth a visit
    We visited Es Mercadel to specifically visit Monte Toro. From where the bus dropped us off it took us about 1 hour to walk to the top via the main road. Once at the top as a couple in our mid 50’s we felt a real sense of achievement and the views from the top made it all the more worthwhile. At the top there is a bar / restaurant, toilet, shop and the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Monte Toro as well as a statue of Christ the redeemer. As mentioned the views are fantastic and we were lucky enough to be able to see Majorca in the distance. If you prefer to visit by car there is plenty of parking available. The only downside is it’s such a shame that some ignorant people feel they can drop litter everywhere rather than use the bins provided! In our opinion Monte Toro is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Good views of Island we hadn't been to.
    Decided to walk up mid morning. You are on the road but we had no problem although I wouldn't recommend it for young children. Took us just over 40 mins , good views of the Island cafe and loo for a drink before return. Town below worth a visit and maybe lunch break.

    Payed my respects
    I visit every year. To pay my respects to family & friends that have passed. The church is a safe haven to pray & an amazing piece of Architecture. The coffee shop/Café is underrated. A very tidy & well organised Gift Shop. Adequate parking & disabled parking.

The highest point on the island and wow! what views. Most of the island is wooded low hills and this pointed high hill seems a little out of place and unexpected. Don't expect things to do, this is things to see. There is a cafe, toilets, and a gift shop but the main objective here is to see the view.

Visited this afternoon. On arrival it was lovely, with beautiful views. The church and little shop were fab and there was plenty of parking.

Unfortunately there were some really selfish people who decided to park up (music blaring) in the lower car park and smoke something funky which polluted the air and made it impossible to breathe so we had to leave.

Such a shame other people ruin things for others.

After a challenging drive in our underpowered rental car we finally reached the top. It was not too crowded and we could really explore the area. Fantastic views in all directions and there is a restaurant and some shops on site. Beautiful place and well worth a stop.

Mount Toro is the highest point on the island of Menorca and you can see the whole island from here - breath taking views. The road up was a bit hairy but there was not a lot of traffic about. There is very little else here, apart from the views. The building houses a convent. There is a cafe and a small souvenir shop, but it is free to visit.

Drive the windy road up to Menorca's highest point. You will find 2 car parks there. Take a walk around and admire the beautiful views, the statue of Christ and the stunning church. Well worth a visit

Bit of a fun drive, saw some random mules on the side of the road and an Egyptian vulture, which was amazing.
Once we reached the top the sites were amazing. So clear, all the way to mallorca

The cafe and shop are worth a look, and the church is beautiful
