    On our first full day we met up with Mark and set off for Cuitadella at the other end of the island. On the way we had a few recommendations, though first we headed up the highest point El Toro, for amazing panoramic views, if you could avoid the telecom masts!
    Back down we explored the museum of antiquities with a very fine display of local crafts along with a few ceramics, including some with turquoise bronze glaze, as part of a special exhibition.
    Across the main road in El Marcadal, we stopped at a little patisserie where we bought some delights for Toni and Jen.
    We then continued to our destination. On the way we stopped at one of the unique to Menorca ancient burial constructions which date from several centuries bc.
    First impression was of a picturesque town with market and open squares. Just a short walk from where we parked, we found a cafe where we had a light lunch. In the afternoon we visited the cathedral and very interesting museum in a cloisters.
    On the way back we turned north and stopped at a very pleasant town of Fornells for a coffee. Then we took a different road back which took us along the quayside of Mao.
    This evening we wandered along to Calles de Fonts where we sat and had Pomada, local gin and lemonade , very pleasant. A little further round we stopped at Dinkum to eat, run by an Aussie of course. J had sole, me the slow roasted lamb shoulder, washed down with the house Rioja, followed by lemon meringue, all delicious.

    It was a bit of a rainy day so we first went to the Artisan Centre of Menorca which was a great exhibition of all the main artisan crafts. The top craft was the carpenters who make the traditional gates from wild olive wood. After that we headed to Lithica, an old limestone quarry that has been turned into a garden/sculpture park. We were first presented with a view into one of the machine-worked quarries which has totally vertical sides... and then we wandered towards the old quarries where nature had taken over again. The experience was labyrinthine and delightful... a bit like a cross between being in the secret garden and being in an archaeological remain. We kept discovering new little secrets; fountains, almond trees, the medieval garden. We finally went into the base of the machine worked quarries: one of which had an actual labyrinth made of stone and the other was a concert hall. Altogether a great visit for a non-beach day.Read more

    Wieder mit dem Linienbus ging es diesmal auf die Westseite der Insel nach Ciutadella.
