Located halfway between Ciutadella and Maó, Es Mercadal was created in the 14th century to serve as a relay between the two main towns of the island, at the time of the Catalan-Aragonese repopulation. The passage through this small village nestled in the hollow of a valley at the foot of Monte Toro is therefore obligatory. Its popular Menorcan architecture and 18th century parish church are well worth a stop, as are the fine restaurants that make Es Mercadal one of the island's gourmet spots.
In recent years, Es Mercadal has also developed a dense cultural activity supported by numerous events and activities organised throughout the year (music, theatre, dance...). We can therefore only recommend that you consult its cultural agenda by going to the tourist office.
To get to the village from Maó, it is advisable to take the Camí d'en Kane (by car, but also by bicycle), a 20-kilometre trail traced out in the 18th century, which takes you through beautiful rural landscapes.
