The Balearic island of Menorca also known as the "little sister" of Mallorca is not only a well-loved holiday destination but is also an intelligent real estate option. There is much to discover about this very special island, which is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and also a Starlight destination, it has sustainable tourism, beautiful bays and coves, pretty landscapes and a long history – it is simply the perfect Mediterranean island to call home. The island's history is particularly reflected in the charismatic capital Mahon, where charming, renovated town properties are in high demand. Why Mahon - impressive sights to see, easy access to various beaches as well as proximity to the airport and the fabulous Port of Mahon (Mao) are excellent advantages to consider when deciding on where to buy property, be it your second home, holiday home or somewhere to settle for good. In this blog, real estate agent Engel & Völkers share a bit about the history of Mahon and highlights why buying a renovated townhouse in Mahon is a good move.
Mahon is an ideal location for buying a property, according to real estate agent Engel & Völkers Menorca. The city is located on the east coast of the Balearic Island and features a 5km-long natural harbour, one of the longest in the world. After Mahon became the capital of Menorca, it underwent many modernisations and has been transformed into the modern urban capital of this beautiful island. The many monuments, emblematic buildings and other marvels that characterise the old part of the city are evidence of the many civilisations that have a history with the island.
Originally, the capital of Menorca was called Maghen, the name given to it by the Phoenicians more than 3000 years ago. The current name stems from General Magon, brother of Hannibal, who lived in Menorca around 205 BC. With the arrival of the Muslims the capital moved to Ciutadella, which remained the capital until the British occupation in 1722 when Mahon once again became the central hub. In the old town you will still find the colonial heritage of the 18th century, which includes Baroque features, a neoclassic town hall and the Principal de Guardia, the former British Guards Lodge. Other impressive historical buildings include the Cathedral of Santa Maria, with its monumental organ, and the Teatro Principal, which is one of the oldest opera houses in Spain. Check out the townhouses in our current portfolio - let yourself be inspired by the beauty, richness and grandeur of the city and relish the thought of completing the purchase of a gorgeous, renovated townhouse with heaps of personality. Other interesting buildings include the churches of Sant Francesc and the Iglesia El Carme and the Museum of Menorca, which is housed in a former Franciscan monastery.
