- The Cap d’Artrutx lighthouse, built in the mid nineteenth century, does not have the charm of lighthouses like Favàritx, Cavalleria or Punta Nati, but its characteristic black and white stripes have inspired many paintings. On a good day, from the cliffs to the left of the lighthouse you can see the island of Mallorca.
These days the lighthouse has a fine restaurant where you can sample signature dishes that reveal the secrets of Menorcan and Mediterranean cuisine.
