- Phil Lee The Rough Guide to Menorca 1858287081- 2001 Page 154 "Tucked into a hollow beneath a steep hill, 8km from Es Mercadal on the C721 and 7km from Es Migjorn Gran, lies FERRERIES, with its narrow, sloping streets, framed by terraced fields. A surprise here is the pagoda-like piece of modern sculpture in the main square, the Plaça Espanya, while just up the hill at the back of the plaça – along c/Fred – stands the neatly shuttered Ajuntament, primly facing the parish church of Sant Bartomeu, a largely eighteenth century edifice with an 1884 vintage belfry tacked onto the top."
