Binebeca Vell or Old Town was actually designed and built in the 1970 s by a famous Catalan architect but manages to look like a genuinely old fishing village with its quaint whitewashed houses and narrow alleys.

Minorca  is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Spain. The island  is the second largest of the Balearic Islands, located to the northeast of Mallorca.

October 8, 1993 the island of Minorca was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

Coming from Spain with "Swiss" stamps...weird^^
It's a private courier service, some souvenir shops offer Swiss Post stamps. There are special boxes in which postcards franked with those stamps have to be posted. Swiss post collect them and sent the postcards.
