Out of the ordinary sightseeing roads for menorca visitors. After all calas and archaeological parks you would be happy to see something so special. Believe me this is a place you don't want to miss on.

A different place with something special. Some old quarries converted into orchards or gardens. Place with magical light and ambience. Something more than stone: amazing ecosystems, calm, walking trail,....fascinating. There is a wonderful stone labyrinth, funny for children and adults.

No as Espai says there is not cafe, and another thing to be aware of is that there are no toilets apart from those at the entrance.
