Let's talk about   Es Mercadal

What can we say about the municipality of Mercadal? It is the one we live in and therefore the one we know best. Moreover, its location is ideal, as it is situated in the centre of the island, giving us the possibility of being able to reach any other part of Menorca in just a few minutes.

There are countless things we like about the town, it has very special corners and many unspoilt beaches to visit. Spectacular places to watch the sunset in summer. If we had to choose one, we would say the lighthouse of Cavallería, from where, with a bit of luck, you will be able to see a music group that will entertain you with its marvellous views.

We must not forget the street markets, both the one in Fornells every Monday afternoon from June to September, and the one in Mercadal during the same period but on Thursdays. Both are full of craftsmen selling their products. In summer we don’t miss them, we start with a stroll around the market, buy something for a snack and finish with a beer in any of the fantastic terraces of the bars and restaurants in the area.

On Sunday afternoons, a walk along the promenade of Fornells and up to the Torre and then a drink or dinner in the fishing village is one of the best things to do.

There are a lot of urbanisations to visit, and many points with connection to the Camí de Cavalls, so well known here on the island. We can boast that for lovers of trail running, we have one of the areas with the steepest slopes. We are talking about the stretch from Binimel-là to Cala Pilar, known here as “Mordor”.

Culture and traditions

Sant Martí and Sant Antoni… Our fiestas are held on the third and fourth weekends of July. Those days the villages are full of atmosphere, Menorcans who live abroad and come to live it on purpose. We recommend you to visit the village during these days, as there are many activities programmed and the atmosphere is spectacular. In Sant Antoni the most beautiful thing is the fireworks that are launched from the sea to celebrate the end of the festivities, it is full of spectators.

In Mercadal, and at any time of the year, you can visit the craft centre where you can see and learn about the oldest trades in the village. Some of them are still present today. If you go to see it, you are sure to recognise them when you visit the shops in the village.

We cannot forget Sant Nicolau, the last festival of the summer. It is organised by a committee of young people from the municipality and the reason for this festival is basically to celebrate the fact that all the summer festivals that have been held have gone well. On Saturday it is held in Mercadal and on Sunday in Monte Toro. There is a bus service to take all those who wish to take part in this festival up and down.

Gastronomy

Calamares a la menorquina, la panadera… are typical dishes from here. But what makes us unique is that in Fornells they make the best “caldereta de langosta” (lobster stew) in all of Menorca, and we would say in the world! There is no one who can resist it, and if you enjoy it eating it with the spectacular views of the harbour, it is a unique experience. Over the years, this dish has been modernised a lot, and renowned chefs such as Dabiz Muñoz have tried it.

It is true that in Mercadal, you will find the best ensaimada in the world, Can Pons, a renowned oven in the village has been participating in this competition for several years, and each year they have won prizes, but now it can be said that they have the best ensaimada of all. Don’t forget to go for it, they also have them with different types of fillings, we like them all, we can’t choose one.

Sweets predominate in this village. There is also Cas Sucrer, where for years they have been known for their “carquinyols” and amargos, typical sweets from Menorca. In the past they also used to make “turro cremat”, and nowadays they still make “brazos de gitano”, a cake that is also very typical of the island.

Y ya para rematar, de estos quedan pocos, en Es Forn de Sa Plaça siguen haciendo el pan ellos cada día, trabajan toda la noche para poder ofrecer por la mañana un pan totalmente artesanal.
