Menorca has numerous defence towers, the first few we’re built during the late 16th century to prevent invasions form pirates and the Turkish, these include Castell San Nicholas built in 1690 in Ciutadella and to two further towers at Punta Prima and Alcufar. Then later during 1798-1809 the British built a further 12 to protect its shores from further attacks.
