Welcome to Ciutadella


Founded by the Carthaginians and known under the Moors as Medina Minurqa, Ciutadella was almost destroyed during the 1558 Turkish invasion, and much of the city was subsequently rebuilt in the 17th century. It was Menorca’s capital until the British arrived in the early 18th century.
