Sant Climent Menorca
Located towards the South East of the island next to the Menorca airport. For families there isn’t a great deal here, but it isn’t far from the Capital Mahon or the larger resort of Cala en Porter. For older couples and those without children it can act as a good base to explore the island, with walks and cycling routes available.

Sant Climent Fiesta
First of all the festival is held annually on the 3rd Weekend of August. Fiesta of Sant Climent in Sant Climent.
‘Fiestas’ or Festivals are a large part of Spanish culture, as well as Menorcan culture. An amazing festival with over 100 primed and prepared horses and riders parade through the old city streets of Sant Climent.
A huge part of the festival is when the horses parade and perform cargols. When riders circle specific points and the jaleos. Jaleos are when horses rear up on their back legs, Jaleo – young brave men, vying for good luck attempt to touch the horses hearts as they rear up.
A traditional drink accompanies these Menorca fiesta, Pomada. Pomada’s are the local Menorcan Gin mixed with bitter lemonade, usually Fanta Lemon.
Be careful, small children can become scared by the large crowds, rearing horses and electricity in the air. The streets are packed and much busier than usual, therefore can be overwhelming to younger people. Everyone however, is in a great mood and hoping to have a good time.
