History in the open air

This eco-museum combines an exhibition of historic remains with the countryside, botany, fauna, and ethnological elements.

The museum has two areas. One is in a traditional Minorca country house, where there is an educational exhibition on the local countryside and its most important archaeological sites. The other is an outdoor area of 19 hectares where you can see everything from a 1st-century B.C. Roman camp (the only one remaining from this time, according to the experts), a Roman city, a Muslim mosque, an English tower, a limestone oven and several quarries, as well as the oldest lighthouse on the island, built in 1857.
