Well worth the walk to this tower. Views are amazing and their is also a very small Prayer area on the journey towards the tower. A nice little insight as to the history of the island.

Great little place, presented well, gives an incite into life on the front line defending this island in days gone by.

Walked up to the tower after we had lunch in Fornells & walked round the harbour. Car parking at bottom of hill. Well worth the walk for the coastal views.

If you are interested in the history of Menorca and the British involvement on the island this may be for you. If you want to see Fornells and the sea from a different angle this may be for you. The displays around the walls are in Spanish and Catalan, no English, get a leaflet at the entrance which has English... More

For bells is a lovely fishing town, but not much else to see except for this tower. It was built by the British. You can pay to go up it, not much, but we didn't fancy it.

Visited this landmark while having a day in Fornells. Paid €2,40 to get in and had an informative walk in and up the tower. Be careful of the opening times to make sure your visit isn't wasted as while the views are superb, it closed as I left and other visitors had just arrived.

Nice walk up to the tower, although I'm not a great up-hill walker. Lovely viewpoint over the Bay, I don't know if you can go inside, because it was the first day of the season and all locked up.

Visited in April, a short walk up hill. Lovely views at the top. Tower closed in April. Little shrine type thing just below and off pavement paths to the cliffs
