HISTORY OF MENORCA
BY ALESANDRO DE MOOR
FRENCH DOMAIN
The only remarkable thing in the French domain was the foundation of Sant Lluis, at the south-east of the island.

SPANISH DOMINATION
Nowadays, Menorca is a part of Spain. Once they conquered the island, they destroyed St Felip. The island hasn't changed so much from that days.
TOURISM
People often come to Menorca in summer, when it's hot, because of the beautiful beaches, but when they have free time, they go to the talaiotical monuments.
PANXES ROTGES
It's a nickname of the people that live in Ferreries. It's also a festival.
