About Menorca

The island is known for its collection of megalithic stone monuments: navetes, taules and talaiots. Some of the earliest culture on Menorca was influenced by other Mediterranean cultures, including the Greek Minoans of ancient Crete (see also Cretan mythology). For example, the use of inverted plastered timber columns at Knossos is thought to have influenced early peoples of Menorca in imitating this practice. The endonym (native name) derives from "Mnān" or "Mnaieh" meaning 'place' or 'land', due to a common misconception first recorded by Pliny that there were once "Menecrates", an island people called after their ruler Mnaseas ("Μνασεῖς"), who gave his name to both islands; however it seems more likely that they took it from an existing word for menorcan limestone - μνορικός ("mnorkos") - rather than vice versa as suggested in some dictionaries.
