Great for couples due to it’s proximity to the capital and the water sports in S’Algar. For families, not such as great with it being in-land, however it is close to the capital and other resort towns such as Es Castell and Alcaufar.

First of all the festival is held annually on the Last Weekend of August. Fiesta Sant Lluis in Saint Lluis.
‘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 Saint Lluis.
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.
