Sa Torre d'en Gaumes. The main farm estate.

Along the medieval period Menorcans built towers located on hillocks from where they could spot the arrival of enemies that often attack villages and farms.

It is not difficult to appreciate the farm house in Sa Torre d'Gaumés is set around one of these towers. The
red colour painted front facade, that has so often been used in houses of the island was obviously built some centuries later and the ornamental arrangement of symmetrical order and neoclassic style showing us the property has its splendor time along the 1800's.
