Icons of the Menorcan landscape where you can savour the best Mahón cheese

The agricultural landscape of Menorca is dotted with llocs, isolated white houses surrounded by cereal fields and verdant grassy meadows. The land is home to grazing cows whose milk is used to make the renowned Mahón cheese, protected under a Designation of Origin. You can visit many of these llocs, often buildings of great architectural interest, complete with dairies, bread ovens, pantries, cold stores, livestock pens, coach houses and stables.

At the llocs you can also learn how Menorca’s star product - Mahón cheese - is made. The Cheese Route includes all the cheesemakers where you can taste, buy and explore the world of this product, visiting places where cheese becomes an experience for all the senses. Let the best producers explain the secrets of this product, while you enjoy its choicest morsels.
