Principal de Guardia, an 18th-century building for the English guard corps, with a red facade. Church of Santa María: building of great architectural beauty in front of the Town Hall. The 15-meter-high organ, undoubted protagonist, is emblematic. The Sant Francesc Church. Menorca Museum. An old Franciscan convent, confiscated in 1835 that houses the museum with important archaeological collections. Calle de Isabel II: this street is the one with the largest number of stately buildings from the 18th century.
