Right in the center of the island we find the beautiful town of Es Mercadal, whose name comes from the Latin "ipso mercatale" and this one from "mercatum", place or square where the market is held. In the concession of its celebration in 1301 it is cited as "Mercatallo".
Well, more than a mountain it is a mount. The highest of the whole island with 358 meters and from the top you can see almost the entire island. At its top we find the wonderful sanctuary of the Virgen de Monte Toro, patron saint of the island.
