Visitas guiadas a la isla de Lazareto

The doors of Lazaretto are opened once again for guided tours. The Island Council Consell Insular de Menorca in conjunction with the tourist board Fundació Foment del Turisme de Menorca, have put together these tours for everyone, both residents and visitors, to come and discover the history of one of the most fascinating spots of the island. Lazareto is a listed building, registered as Bien de Interés Cultural since 1985. It is located on the one of the four islets within the port of Mahón. It was built between 1794 and 1807, and was operative as from 1816, with the aim of isolating anyone coming into the port of Mahón suspected of carrying any infectious disease or already infected. There were several dramatic episodes, such as the yellow fever epidemics in 1821 and 1876, and an outbreak of typhus in 1821. The last ship held in quarantine here came in 1919. Soon after, the place was no longer used for health purposes. These emblematic buildings were transferred from the Ministry of Health (Ministerio de Sanidad) to the island council (Consell Insular de Menorca) in April 2015, when a new phase has started: the buildings are to be used for educational or touristic purposes.
