San Luís - Sant Lluís From 1756 to 1763 Menorca was under French dominion. In 1761 the French founded this village and named it after their king Louis XV.
In the beginning, it was planned to lodge French troops during the Seven-Years' War in order to create a pinpoint to organise the densly-populated rural outskirts.
The summer festivals in honor of Saint Louis are being celebrated on August 25th, yet if this date should happen to fall on a working day, they will be postponed to the following weekend. Sant Lluís has a distinctive church (Eglesia de Sant Lluís) and the prehistoric site of Binissafulett.
The municipality's population does not even reach 7000 inhabitants and its extension is 40 square kilometers.
Sant Lluís is the only place on Menorca where we find beaches equipped for handicapped persons.
As you approach the village, you will immediately see the Molí de Dalt, a fully-restored windwill, now used as a museum.
The airport is about 10 minutes away by car.
