We visited the Fornells Tower while on holiday recently. It is a good hike uphill but with nice views when you get to the top. The tower was okay but you had to pay to go in. We didn't bother.

We have been many times to Menorca but never visited Fornells. Decided one morning to go and we were not disappointed. It's a lovely little place to visit. It only took us half an hour from Punta Prima where we stayed. It has a tower...More

We stayed a week in Fornells so had to visit. Easy walk up from car park. Only downside is there is no English translation on the interpretation boards, which is a shame. Small entrance fee - free entry on Mondays

Interesting place to visit, with great views, do go inside and see the how soldiers lived there and protected the Island. It helps that in the heat of the day, its nice and cold inside.

If you get the chance do go inside. It many cost a couple of Euro but its well worth as you learn more about the fort itself

A interesting part of menorca history. Just a hill to overcome but it's worth it. It cost around €3.00. We went as a couple but it's great for all ages. You get a little information booklet ( which you have to return) which tells you...More

Definitely worth it on a Monday as it’s free. Unfortunately all the info inside is in Spanish so I wasn’t able to read up on the history. Good views from the top of the tower and only a short stroll up a small hill. Can’t...More
