Things to do in Menorca, Spain

Things to do in Menorca, Spain

Menorca, with its chilled vibes, laid back mood and slower pace sits with its Balearic brothers in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Menorca means smaller island but this little isle punches well above its weight in terms of unspoilt beaches, secluded coves and crystal clear waters.

Things to do in Menorca include visits to captivating old towns, cathedrals, harbours and a vast natural bio-sphere. The food is good; think cheese, the freshest seafood, vineyards and gin.

Hauptplatz, main square in Graz

 

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Graz is the juxtaposition of old and new, traditional and modern, elegance and quirk. The pastel coloured stucco facades and cobbles of the old town contrast with edgy, futuristic design and modern architecture. In 2003 Graz was named European Capital of Culture and in 2011 was awarded UNESCO City of Design status. The two awards complement both each other and the city of Graz perfectly.
