Approximately 4 hours
Meals not included
From the harbor of Mahón, your coach heads toward the center of the island via the north road, passing several small villages along the way.
Your first stop is at the whitewashed town of Fornells on the rugged north coast. This former fishing village is famous for its divine lobster stew.
From Fornells, you’ll drive up Monte Toro, the highest point on the island at 1,170 feet, where a brief stop offers a marvelous view. You will continue your tour, to La Mola Fortress, constructed between 1848 and 1875. La Mola was a contingency plan, based on the notion that the British may want to return to the island and establish a base from which to fight the French. At that time, the two countries were in dispute over naval control of the Mediterranean. Now, La Mola's location is one of the most beautiful spots on the island and its strategic position, at the entrance to Mahón port, is still of great value.
At Binibeca -- a picturesque village built in Spanish Revival/Moorish style -- enjoy a half-hour of free time to stroll through this charming town before you return to the ship.
