Monte Toro is the highest point of the island at 357 m. From here there is a superb view of the rocky and bare Fornells Bay to the north and the town of Maó and the plateau to the southeast.
Mystical souls will be able to gather in a sanctuary built on the ruins of a primitive convent, in front of the remarkable Black Madonna, patron saint of Menorca. Skeptics will know how to respect the silence that reigns in this place.
Warning: Scruffy people in beachwear will be mercilessly repressed! They will be able to fall back on the bar-terrace on the right of the sanctuary and be satisfied with the panorama, despite the awful communication antennas, useful, certainly ugly! In the summer, the place is frequented by tourist buses...
Legend has it that it was a black bull with silver hooves that indicated where this statue of the Virgin was buried. But the name of this mountain actually comes from the Catalan word Turó which means "hill". Visitors taking the steep trail will discover the source of the Enzell, the only spring water to be bottled in Menorca.
The easiest way to reach the shrine is by car. The bravest can nevertheless climb the small mountain on foot (1 hour from Es Mercadal) or by bike (30 minutes), following the road.
