Project Environment

Project environment:
Sant Lluis is located in the South-East of the Menorca, it is a small and cozy town surrounded by the south coast consisting of small urbanizations among which we find fishing villages forming a beautiful coast view of beaches and natural landscape. The island has short distances between towns and interesting spots, it has 216 kilometers in the coast and the largest distance between two points are 47 kilometers. The 8th of October 1993, UNESCO declared it a Biosphere reserve, due to its well-kept heritage and landscape.

San Luis visitants find a community characterized by a huge cultural dynamism during all the year. It is worth to mention traditions like popular dancing, a game called “La Bolla” and its well-known local festivities with horses.

The population is 7.000 approximately, and it is located 4 kilometers away from the capital Mahón, where the population increases, and young people from around the island meet during the weekends at night.
Our economy is based on tourism but it is also sustained on old jobs like agriculture and cattle farming, which gives the island a good reputation on its own gastronomy.
The volunteer is going to be accommodated in the mentioned areas near to the project head office either in a shared flat with other volunteers or in a hosting family.
Meals are going to be arranged previously depending on the accommodation type: hosting family, self-catering or the school dining hall.

The other expenses which aren’t financed by the project, such as flight ticket, are going to be assumed by the participant organizations (hosting and sending organizations) or either by the same volunteer.
