Mediterranean Tour in Mahon

Description


Welcome in the atmosphere of the biggest natural seaport in the Mediterranean.

Minorca Island's capital, Mahon (Mahón in Castilian) is known for its strategic port. It is very close by, in the waters of the Mediterranean, that a very important naval battle between the English and the French took place in 1756, known as the Battle of Minorca, won by Louis XV's French Navy. Almost instantly taken back by the English in the context of a historic treaty, Minorca Island was then given back to Spain in 1802. Throughout your guided tour, you will notice that the British occupation left its mark regarding the local architecture.
