Imagine what Holy Week in Menorca would be like
Imagine spending your holiday surrounded by sea and nature in a unique setting. If you still have doubts, here are 6 good reasons to visit Menorca at Easter:
Hidden coves in Menorca
It’s impossible to talk about Menorca without mentioning its wonderful hidden coves. They are quiet at Easter and receive fewer visitors than during the summer months, and so they are perfect for relaxing, walking and admiring the incomparable scenery.
You can prepare your own picnic and spend a day in your special paradise. Try not to take natural tokens back with you; the best souvenir is a fantastic photo and a memorable moment stored in your mind’s eye.
Holy Week processions in Menorca
The island also has a more traditional side, which, at Easter, is expressed through processions and floats that pass through the streets of the main cities on the island. Those persons who enjoy these traditions will appreciate the local and friendly atmosphere of Menorca. One of the most popular processions on the island is the Holy Burial (Santo Entierro), which is held on Good Friday in Mahón.
Participating in and getting to know the culture and traditions of the places we visit is one of the best ways to learn and enjoy. Discover the magic of the customs of our people.
Camí de Cavalls
For those who prefer to organise the procession themselves and start walking, Camí de Cavalls is the perfect circuit for walking around the whole island and discovering its wonderful scenery. This time of year, when the weather is mild, is the most enjoyable.
We at ARTIEM are fans of Camí de Cavalls and for years we have been helping to protect it, to the point of being the main sponsor of the race that is held there, the ARTIEM Epic Camí de Cavalls 360°. Natural, protected beauty spots. Amazing views that allow you to connect with nature: walking, running, cycling on the MTB routes, and always taking care of the places you pass through.
At ARTIEM Capri you can choose one of the 3 experiences we offer for exploring Camí de Cavalls as you want, along with the Menorca 360°: hike Menorca experts on a hiking route, bike Menorca on a MTB or explore the island of Menorca on a route that combines both modes.
Ciutadella de Menorca and Mahón
It may not be warm enough for you to enjoy the beaches and sun during Holy Week in Menorca; but you will have the chance to discover the history of this island, which played a very important role and has been home to many different civilisations. Visit Ciutadella de Menorca and Mahón and relive the history of Menorca.
Palaces, cathedrals, maze-like streets and fortresses from which to watch the sunset just as our ancestors did centuries ago.
Typical Menorcan pastries to eat during Holy Week
Menorcan confectionery is famous and there are two typical pastries that you should try at this time of year.
Firstly, the “formatjades” are bowl-shaped pastries that are filled with different ingredients. The typical Menorcan “formatjada” is filled with meat and eaten on Holy Saturday after Lent.
Another classic is the egg yolk candies that are typical of Holy Week. In the olden days, the penitents would throw them to the crowds during the processions. Today, they are sold in cake shops.
At ARTIEM, we promote local gastronomy and trade to enable our guests to enjoy delicious typical products while we promote sustainability in the commerce of our people.
The weather in Menorca at Holy Week
During Holy Week, the weather in Menorca is very pleasant. It is not too cold and not too hot. It’s the perfect time for you to discover the island, stroll on the beach and enjoy walking or visit the cities and towns on foot without having to escape the heat. Pack spring clothing and a jacket for going out at night, or for visiting the northern part of the island. Oh! And don’t forget your swimsuit. You never know, it’s sometimes impossible not to want to take a dip in the sea when the sun comes out.
And after enjoying all these plans, relax in ARTIEM after your busy days during Holy Week.
