    Back again for the amazing views
    We drove up here to re-visit after many years away from Menorca and were again taken by the breathtaking views and peaceful environment. We looked around the church and courtyard areas, before having breakfast at the cafe. Our ham and cheese sandwiches were lovely - all fresh and tasty, especially the crusty bread - and coffees. There is a gift and craft shop too, which is well worth a perusal. There's no charge for entry to Monte Toro, and the steep, winding drive up to it is quite an experience. Worth a visit.

    Absolutely worth a visit. Fabulous views, fantastic cafe and shop. The church and the courtyard are stunning. Beautiful plants. We were there for about an hour at least. The children really enjoyed looking around. The views are spectacular.

    Best views of Menorca
    We did not get the chance to visit last time we were in Menorca and so glad we did this time. The views from the top are fantastic and you can see the whole of the island and beyond. The restaurant is a good place for refreshments although we only had a drink. Would highly recommend.

    Amazing Panoramic Viewpoint
    Monte Toro is one of the best places to visit on Menorca. The mountain is only 358 metres tall, but can be seen from many angles on the island like its just calling you to go to the top. Monte Toro has a winding road all the way to the top where you can find a car park, monastery and a cafe and gift shop. The Monastery is open to the public and a very nice looking building on top of this mountain. The cafe also does a range of food from small bites to large dinners. The gift shop is also quite sizeable. The views from the top are amazing. You can see most of the island. Most notable places you can see is the local town of Es Mercadel, the seaside town of Fornells and the Cape Cavalleria Lighthouse and its peninsula. This astonishing viewpoint just cannot be missed.

    Well worth a visit
    We visited Es Mercadel to specifically visit Monte Toro. From where the bus dropped us off it took us about 1 hour to walk to the top via the main road. Once at the top as a couple in our mid 50’s we felt a real sense of achievement and the views from the top made it all the more worthwhile. At the top there is a bar / restaurant, toilet, shop and the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Monte Toro as well as a statue of Christ the redeemer. As mentioned the views are fantastic and we were lucky enough to be able to see Majorca in the distance. If you prefer to visit by car there is plenty of parking available. The only downside is it’s such a shame that some ignorant people feel they can drop litter everywhere rather than use the bins provided! In our opinion Monte Toro is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Good views of Island we hadn't been to.
    Decided to walk up mid morning. You are on the road but we had no problem although I wouldn't recommend it for young children. Took us just over 40 mins , good views of the Island cafe and loo for a drink before return. Town below worth a visit and maybe lunch break.

    Payed my respects
    I visit every year. To pay my respects to family & friends that have passed. The church is a safe haven to pray & an amazing piece of Architecture. The coffee shop/Café is underrated. A very tidy & well organised Gift Shop. Adequate parking & disabled parking.

It's the place to go to view all of the island and put its shape and size in perspective. You can also see Majorca

Good views from the top on a food day. Unfortunately it was hazy but worth going up. There was a wedding in the chapel at the top and a sanctuary. At the summit is a Statue of Christ.
