From the Gloss to the Menorcan stone

Making a route to the north of the island and moving a bit away from the harsh tramuntana that hits the coast, we enter an area full of vegetation, as you pass through the small sandy roads you can hear a kind of popular composition, oral and rhymed, the Gloss. Its singers are the Glosadores de Menorca. The best way to discover the island with the Menorca scooter rental.
The Menorcan gloss is a poetry normally improvised at the very moment it is recited. In the Balearic, rural and illiterate society of the 19th century, the figure of the “glosador” became quite famous, with some of them becoming professional, traveling from town to town, testing their abilities in the face of public challenges or others glosadores in the so-called “gloss battles”.
