Menorca, tourist info

Menorca is one of the main islands of the Balearic Isles. The name comes from Minorica, (since it is smaller than Majorca). The island is divided, administratively, in the following municipalities: Alaior, Es Castell, Feries, Es Mercadal, Es Migjorn Gran, Sant Lluís, Ciutadella y Maó, these two are the main municipalities. It has a population of 86.697 inhabitants.



Remains of the talayotica civilization have been found dating from the prehistoric age, they are similar stone monuments to those of Majorca, Sardinia and Malta. It was visited by Phoenicians, Greek and Carthaginians. It was conquered for the Roman Empire by Quinto Cecilio in the year 123 BC . In 427 the island suffered the conquest of the Vandals. After centuries of darkness and isolation, in which the island was attacked by Normans and Arabians, Minorca is conquered in 903 for the Caliphate of Cordoba. The Islamization from the island was very intense. The island was conquered by Alfonso III of Aragon in 1287, though in 1232, three years after the conquest of Majorca by Jaime I the Conqueror, the Muslim Minorca had to pay taxes to the Crown of Aragon. By the Utrecht Treaty became a British dependence for seventy years. After the war of the seven years (1756) Minorca was taken by the French, who in 1756 they returned the control from the island to Great Britain and finally back to Spain in 1802.
