Municipality information Ciutadella

The municipality of Ciutadella de Menorca is situated at the westernmost end of this island, and it is very important for its population, for the picturesque port and for being the bishop see. The name is given by the Christian king Alfons III d'Aragó with the conquest of Menorca. Ciutadella comes from the Latin word civitatella, from the diminutive of civitas. The former inhabitants used to call it Jamma, Iamo, Iamona, Municipium Flavium Iamontarum or medina Minurka. The organizer of the most important aspects of the menorcan life was king Jaume II de Mallorca. In 1301 he started to establish a defence system (cavalry) and parish (union) or the money. The 16th and 17th centuries were characterized by the violent Turkish pirate attacks. It used to be the capital until the English occupation (1708) which moved to Maó in 1722. The 19th century was a demographic, economic and cultural wake up, whereas since the 20th century until nowadays, the tourism is leading the economy, although the traditional handcraft of shoes and jewellery are still important.

Its cultural variety includes the festival of the patron saint, Sant Joan (on the 23rd and 24th o June), internationally known for the show with the riders and horses, and you should visit the old town, with narrow streets and particular buildings that preserve the presence of different civilizations that populated Ciutadella, the prehistoric vestiges, as well as the defence tower and other interesting places.
The municipality has 24 beaches.
