Spanish sites & beautiful beaches

Your arrival by ship is fortuitous, as Mahon is most striking when approached by sea, perched atop a cliff overlooking the natural harbor.

Shops cluster along streets between two plazas, one large and lined with cafés and restaurants, the other tranquil, and site of the Church of Santa Maria, known for a celebrated organ with four keyboards and more than 3,000 pipes; and Carmen, a convent whose cloisters now house the municipal market.

Trivia alert: according to local lore, word of the popular mahonnaise sauce spread in the 18th century and was a global hit; we know it now as mayonnaise, though the French beg to differ on its origins.
