"A central meeting place" Mahón Things to Do Tip by ranger49
Mahón Things to Do: 17 reviews and 63 photos
Placa de S'Esplanada was formerly the military parade ground and is now the largest square in Mahon.
Close to the main bus station it is an attractive open area that marks the end of the narrow roads and historic buildings of the old town and the point at which they merge into the modern town.
Planted with palm trees, grassed areas and formal flower beds, there is a fountain, a playground for children, and a bowling alley for grownups.
People gather here at all times of the day. Every Tuesday and Wednesday a large market - selling everything - is held here, and below there is a big underground carpark.
The market starts early and finishes about 2 o'clock.
The square is bordered by some attractive Georgian style buildings and there is a good choice of cafes and bars for refreshments.
Directions: In the town centre
