Let's talk about   Es Castell

Did you not know that Es Castell is the most easterly municipality in the whole of Spain, that it is also known as Villacarlos, and that there is a fort, Fort Marlborough, which was used for many years to protect the entrance to the port of Mahón and which we can visit during certain months of the year? Well, all this and much more has to offer us in this town located very close to the capital, Mahón.

The popular fiestas of Es Castell are held during the month of July, specifically on the 24th, 25th and 26th in honour of the apostle St. James, Sant Jaume. And like the rest of the island’s fiestas, they revolve around horses and the famous pomada, which is a drink made from Gin Xoriguer and lemonade.

A little bit of history

The origin of this municipality is related to the Castle of San Felipe, built with the idea of protecting the entrance to the port of Mahón from pirate attacks. A suburb was formed around the castle, known as s’Arrabal de Sant Felip, where the castle workers themselves lived and which grew until it had a population of around 3,000 inhabitants.

As the settlement was very badly situated and got in the way of the castle’s defence, during the second English domination, when the English had already taken over the castle, the English themselves decided to move it to a more secluded place and named it Georgetown. In fact, to this day, on the coat of arms of Es Castell you can still see the figure of Saint George, patron saint of Great Britain, after whom the new settlement was named.

After the second English domination, the Spanish recovered and demolished the castle. It was during this brief period that the village was renamed Real Villa de San Carlos, after King Charles III who reigned at the time. Hence the name Villacarlos, which still survives to this day.

And although during the third English domination, they rebuilt the castle and changed the name back to Georgetown, finally and once again under Spanish rule, the municipality recovered the name of Villacarlos, which it still maintains to this day.

Where the day is born

As we were saying, Es Castell is the most easterly municipality in Spain. So coming to enjoy one of its sunrises is a “MUST”.

It has a very military appearance due to its history, with a large parade ground, barracks and a very square layout of streets, leaving no one indifferent. Furthermore, in Cales Fonts, one of its two natural harbours together with Cala Corb, you will find an infinite number of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a great dinner or a few drinks by the sea. If you have the opportunity, don’t miss it.

We could tell you much more about Es Castell, but we have found this promotional video on the town council’s website which sums up the essence of this municipality very well, and where we can see everything that this spectacular town has to offer, which you should definitely see if you visit Menorca.
