Menorca is one of the group of islands called the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea.  The others of this group are Majorca, Ibiza, Formentera and Cabrera, plus a number of much smaller islands.  They form an autonomous province of Spain but each of the four larger islands has its own administrative council.

Menorca itself is the third largest of the islands and is largely unspoilt and has been designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve,.  Something interesting that I have only recently found out: it was a British possession three times during the 18th century and some British influence can still be seen today in the architecture and language, words such as "grevi" meaning gravy!

A map for Monday.

  1. That’s one of the Balearics I’ve not visited, but it’s on my list.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
