Spain. Balearic Islands. Minorca (Menorca). Mahon. A man wearing typical Minorcan sandals walks in the City Hall and passes in front of faces lying on the paving used during the Giants' parade for the "Festes de la Mare de Déu de Gràcia", a traditional summer festival. Maó (in Catalan) and Mahón (in Spanish), written in English as Mahon, is a municipality, the capital city of the island of Menorca, and seat of the Island Council of Menorca. The city is located on the eastern coast of the island, which is part of the autonomous community of the Balearic. In Spain, an autonomous community is a first-level political and administrative division, created in accordance with the Spanish constitution of 1978, with the aim of guaranteeing limited autonomy of the nationalities and regions that make up Spain. 7.09.2019 © 2019 Didier Ruef
