Menorca Enhances its Cultural Heritage

The island of Menorca enhances its cultural heritage offering with the opening of a prehistoric cave to visitors in 2021

Menorca, in the Balearic Islands, will welcome a new cultural space for visitors to enjoy, enhancing its already broad culture heritage offering ahead of the 2021 season.

“Cova de S’Aigu”, located in Cala Blanca-Ciutadella, is a burial cave that dates back to prehistoric times and a place where archaeologists have found remains from a variety of historical eras including some inscriptions from the 18th century, the time of the British occupation of Menorca.

Guided tours in English will be available from March 2021 where visitors can admire the different geological formations as well as a large lake with crystal clear waters among a host of other interesting sites.

During the 18th century, Menorca spent over 70 years under British occupation. The inclusion of the island under British sovereignty made a deep and lasting impression, leaving a wealth of indelible cultural signs such as the architectural styles still present today, culinary dishes and numerous English words that have fused with the Menorcan language.
