Discover the island along the Camí de Cavalls trail and see part of the beautiful coast and inland beauty spots on this route.

The Camí de Cavalls is a path that was used to defend the coast of Menorca and connect the watchtowers and fortresses. It was built in 1330 and has been used as a way to communicate the entire island. Now, after many claims from the locals, the path has become a public road that goes around the entire island– thanks to the recovery work that has been done and completed in 2011. The Camí de Cavalls path has been included in the European Long-Distance Path.
