The manager of our hotel told us about this place when we were looking for somewhere to visit other than another bay or church. To say that we were surprised is perhaps a bit of an understatement. This disused stone quarry is well hidden, tucked away down a side road near Ciutadella. Cut deep into the ground, with a series of gardens scattered around amid great soaring walls, it is very unusual and remarkably interesting. Where else are you likely to find a rose garden at the bottom of a 60 foot hole or a stage in an amphitheatre beneath 80 or 90 feet high walls?
The route around the site is well marked and visitors are left to wander at their own pace. We spent a good two hours there at a price of just four euros each. It is also interesting having a look through the fence at the new quarry being worked next door.
This attraction is very good value and well worth visiting.
