Ciutadella at a glance

Sophisticated Ciutadella is Menorca's second city, on the west coast of Menorca. Once the capital, until 1722 when it is moved to Mahon during British rule, it remains the religious centre of the island.  

The city celebrates the San Juan fiesta (called Sant Joan in Menorquin) every year on 23rd and 24th June, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors from all over Spain and internationally.  During the festivities, medieval style horseback games take place and there is fairground as well as live music in the squares.
