Monte Toro Reviews & Ratings
Amazing views of the surrounding areas and good historical sights inside the Church. Good cafe and gift shop, fun thing to do with the family. Good if you want to take photos.
You have to go here if only for the spectacular views across the island. Good monument of Jesus. Good little restaurant and gift shop.
A beautiful place, nice cosy cafe/shop free toilet for costumers otherwise 50cent... also you able to have a bird view via a tandem fly....
Quite a climb for the hire car. Second gear and yet there were a number of cyclists riding it. The views are stunning and lots of the island can be seen.Some of the car park was being used by paragliders but this added to the spectacle. We visited the church and then bought a beautiful bowl in the tourist shop through the middle archway.
The views! Must visit place if staying in Menorca. You can see the whole of Menorca and the neighboring Island The sanctuary is spectacular. Also the best phone signal I've ever had.
