Sanisera and Sa Nitja | Menorca, Spain

Sanisera and Sa Nitja | Menorca, Spain

On this particular evening, there was a stunning sunset that we enjoyed. The old surrounding ruins, the boat sitting on the calm water and the ruins of the British Tower can all be seen on the horizon in perfect distance from one another, creating a remarkable view. With one shot, I captured this mix of sights that history shaped on the natural port of Sa Nitja. Sanisera and Sa Nitja are now archaeological sites.

Cavalleria Coastline | Menorca, Spain

Cavalleria Coastline | Menorca, Spain

The limestone cliffs of Menorca looked both majestic and peaceful during the morning hours of photography taking with folks from PhotoPills. It was difficult for me to imagine that the Cavalleria Coastline was once a witness of piracy and Roman invasion.

Cap de Farvàritx | Menorca, Spain

Cap de Farvàritx | Menorca, Spain

This setting – Cap de Farvàritx is located on the north-east side of Menorca in the “Parc Natural de S’Albufera des Grau”. This part of the coast is known for both sandy beaches and impressive rock formations. The lighthouse in this image is a little difficult to see in the background, but it stands at 47 meters over sea level and it sends the light at a range of 16 nautical miles.

Lighthouse at Cabo de Cavalleria | Menorca, Spain

Lighthouse at Cabo de Cavalleria | Menorca, Spain

Cabo de Cavalleria is the northern headland of the Menorca island. During the spring months, you can observe the sun rising just behind the cliffs and the lighthouse which stands almost on the edge of the coast and the sea. The lighthouse was built on the tallest cliff in the Cabo de Cavalleria headland and in total, stands at 94 meters over sea level, which makes the emanating light visible from the sea, even at a great distance. The light from the lighthouse flashes twice every ten seconds when the night comes.

Pont d’en Gil bridge | Menorca, Spain

Pont d’en Gil bridge | Menorca, Spain

When I saw this limestone formation on the Menorca island, I immediately thought that this arch had to have been formed by human hand – this shape could be perfectly used as a guarded gate to an ancient port. In reality, Pont d’en Gil, as it is called in the native language, is a rock formation made fully by the forces of nature.
