Isla del Rey reviews
What a hidden treasure. A hospital with historical significance, on an island in the middle of a stunning bay, that delivers in bucketloads! The restoration project, begun by volunteers and continued.... more »
The reasonably early rise is a small price to pay for an island experience that delivers a wealth of history beyond expected! more »
On Sundays you can visit this enclave in the port of Mahon. Former military hospital from the period of English domination, that today a large group of volunteers are rehabilitated. It is worth visiting it.
I have Been coming for many years to Menorca and for various reasons I had not found the opportunity to visit this islet. Until today... And It was a pleasant surprise to me. First of all for the commendable work of recovering this old hospital by the Association of Friends of the island that in an altruistic and selfless way have managed to stop the ruin of the buildings and recover them wonderfully. I Highly Recommend the visit for the meaning of the place, the buildings, the exhibit and the excellent explanations of the guides. A great discovery for me, I recommend you visit it strongly.
