Mahon is located at the top of a cliff in the Catalan region of Spain and is the capital of Menorca. Because of its strategic location, this city has been occupied by number of armies in the previous centuries and this is the reason behind the various historical monuments in Mohan. During the start of the 18th century, Mohan was occupied by the British armies and you will find a great influence of British rule in the city.

Sightseeing in Mohan is the best and interesting activity for the visitors. Placa de s Esplanada is a landmark in Mohan belonging to the British rule as this place was used as a parade ground by the British army during the 18th century and you will find many old barracks along the side of the square inside the palace. This palace has become a good entertainment place for the visitors as it has number of cafes, fountains and playing area for the kids. This palace is also known for managing a small market of clothes each Tuesday and Sunday and some concerts at different occasions.

Old Town of Mohan is located near the Placa de s Esplanada and is a perfect place for evening stroll. There are many zigzag roads in the old quarter and a small plaza along with Santa Maria Church. This church was built here in the start of the 18th century and known for its classical and beautiful façade and the interior of the church is also worth watching. The Town Hall building is also located near the church and it is also an 18th century building and contains some great historical portraits for public display.
