WHERE TO GO WITH YOUR RENTAL CAR IN MENORCA
Pepecar suggests a route by car to discover the history of Menorca, particularly, the history of the Talaiotic culture in the island. To begin our tour, the best option is to start at the rental car office of Pepecar in Menorca Airport to head to our first stop, La naveta of Tudons in Ciudadela.
To get there we have to take the road from Mahon to Ciudadela (Me- 1) until the kilometer number 40, and, then, turn left through the Estudons road. This architectural structure is unique in the world and represents a funeral element built with cyclopean technique, and stones fitted together without any foundation.
Our next stop is the necropolis of Calescoves in Sant Climent Cala'n Porter road, close the town of Alayor and just at the entrance of Calescoves. Thanks to your rental car, in less than 35 minutes you will be there. This necropolis consists of about 90 caves in the walls of the cliffs of the coast. Just as a curious fact, this necropolis has been used for over a thousand years.
The following stop is considered as one of the most important ones. Going to Mahon, on the Me -12 Road, you will find one of the best places to make a stop and rest. What do you think about eating one of the most typical dishes of the island? Do not miss the opportunity to eat cheese of Mahon, Majorcan sausage, and if you travel to Menorca in season, tasty lobsters stew.
Very close to Mahon, in the Camí a Trepuco you find the Talaiotic village of Trepucó. It is about 5 kilometers from the city, so you will arrive there really soon thanks to your rental car with Pepecar. The town had an extension of more than 50 football stadiums in ancient times. However, there are only two buildings, a part of the stronghold, two towers and some remains of houses preserved. Overall, it is one of the most representative historic constructions from the epoch.
Another stop would be the navetas of Rafal Rubí. It is located close to the Camí (road) de Rafal Rubí. To access the place, take your rental car and go to the Me-1 road. The distance is of 15 kilometers, so in 20 minutes approximately you will be in the aforementioned place. In these tombs, more concretely two, archeologists found abundant valuable historic ceramic objects and bronze necklaces, today at Menorca Museum.
Doubtlessly, the best option to move with total freedom in Menorca is to book a rental car.
