The island is full of reminders of its historic past. Fornells Tower is a location that is both in good condition and worthy of a visit.

Minorca has a rich past, and this historic tower looks like an observator or a prison; you can take a ticket and visit the tower; the view on the top is great, the island is very nice.

Boating, and sailing is what draws visitors to Fornells. Famous restaurants frequented by the Spanish Royals bring many visitors to this Jewel of the Mediterranean.

Very nice place to explore and very interesting. Good views from the top. We went on a Monday, which by coincidence was free admission, but it is inexpensive anyway. Ticket office lady very informative.

A little walk away from the adorable town of Fornells, is the tower. It is a beautiful place to sit and watch the sunset. I was definately a highlight of my trip to Menorca. This is a must.

A well preserved and restored defensive tower in the north of the Island. Great views out over the surrounding bays and harbors. Well worth a couple of Euros to get a bit of history and a slightly higher viewpoint.

Not much to say about the Tower. It is a short walk our of Fornells town to the Northern point of the Peninsula. Nothing to do there really but the views are lovely.

You can park at a short distance from the Tower, or walk along from the town on the coast. Pleasant walk and good views. Tower I think had an admission fee, we did not go in.
