Fortaleza de la Mola (La Mola Fortress) Tours and Activities

For an example of 19th century military architecture, one needs only to visit the Fortress Isabel II on La Mola of Maó. Also known as Fortaleza de la Mola and La Mola Fortress, this fortification was built over a span of more than two decades (1848 – 1875), during a time when France and Great Britain were at arms over control of the Mediterranean and the port of Maó. In response to this dispute, the Spanish government constructed the fortress.

Exploration of the fortress beings at Queen’s Gate and continues throughout the inside walls. Be sure to pay a visit to the underground galleries where guns were housed, the barracks, Princess Tower, prison and Queen’s Water Cistern.

Located on a peninsular off Mahon Harbour, the fortress is placed in a gorgeous spot overlooking the north coast and Clot de La Mola cove. The area, which is also a special protected area for birds, is a great spot to watch bird migrations, too.
