An 18 minute drive from Menorca's airport, the hillside town of Alaior is situated in central Menorca between Mao-Mahon and Es Mercadal. Founded in 1304 by King James II of Majorca, this rural region is most famous for its cheese and shoemaking industries and is the island's third largest resort. Stroll along its fresh-aired, cobbled streets and discover an old-style square surrounded by charming whitewashed houses, untouched by tourism.
For a taste of the island's history, Santa Eulalia church in the heart of the town is worth a visit for its exquisite baroque architecture and striking mural and sculptures. It was restored after the civil war and is a mix of Gothic and Moorish influences. This holy site is also the perfect spot to enjoy panoramic views of the city. Travel back in time with the ancient town ruins of Torre d'en Galmés, or take an archaeological tour to experience the region's rich history. After an afternoon of sightseeing, mingle with the locals and holidaymakers at one of the many tradtional Menorcan cafés and restaurants.
Alaior is within easy reach of Menorca's Blue Flag beaches Cala'n Porter and Son Bou, just 10km away. Crystal clear shallow waters, a diverse local bird life and wide coastal promenades with shops, bars and restaurants make this region ideal for families and couples who want to experience a tranquil holiday under the Mediterranean sun. Experience the untouched beauty of this serene resort from the privacy of your own Clickstay villa.
