Fort Marlborough

The low-lying Fort Marlborough was built by the British in the 18th century, and as a cover operation, its entrance was hidden in a deep tunnel. Take a tour through the fort's gloomy tunnels for a unique experience.

Do & See

Many visitors immediately head east through the flower-freckled meadow land of the interior to the resorts of Cala en Forcat, Cala en Bosch and Cala Galdana. However, step off the beaten track and you will be rewarded — Mahón (or Maó), an interesting capital with a turbulent history, saw many sea conflicts as the Spanish, British and French grappled for control of this strategically important naval base. The influences of all three cultures, as well as the native Baleriac one, can be seen here today.
