ES CASTELL un pueblo con 500 años de historia

We produced a 30 minutes documentary about Es Castell, a small town of Menorca. Located to the east on the island, it is the first spanish country to see the sun rise. The history of Es Castell is closely linked to the nearby Castle of San Felipe, a fortification built by the Spanish in the sixteenth century to protect the island from attacks by Turkish pirates and later expanded and strengthened by the British. Es Castell began as a small cluster of houses located near the walls of the castle and was once known as Arrabal. With the passage of time and after the expansion of the castle, the small town was moved several times until its present location between Cala Corb and Cala Fonts. During the British rule the town was named Georgetown. It was later renamed by the Spanish Villa Real de San Carlos, in honor of Charles III, King of Spain.
