Ciutadella is western Menorca's saving grace - a nice bit of history and culture to counter the mass development and fake Manchester United shirts of the nearby resorts.

Menorca's second city is easy to get to - it's linked to the rest of the island by an excellent bus service, which is both frequent and reliable.

The town sits high above its harbour, which is based on a narrow channel leading out into the sea. Ciutadella's architecture is beautiful - lots of little cobbled streets with Baroque and Gothic buildings.

There's not many specific sites to explore in Ciutadella - it's simply a nice place to wander around for the afternoon. That said, the Gothic cathedral is stunning, and well worth a quick look.

Most of Ciutadella's nicest restaurants are on the harbourfront. Expect some fine seafood and paellas. Yum Yum.
