Can Albertí 1740 Boutique Hotel was built in the 18th century during the Enlightenment of Mahón. Although there are traces of the name Albertí in writings from the time of the reconquest of Menorca from the Arabs in the 13th century, it is not until the beginning of the 18th century when there are references to the lineage corresponding to the building that concerns us.

The history of this place begins with Vicente Diego Alberti Mercadal. Knighted on May 11, 1711, we can consider him the first patriarch in the line of succession directly linked to the building that concerns us today. His firstborn, Jose Alberti Carreraswas the one who promoted the construction of the building on Calle Isabel II, 9 in Mahón, who years later was able to see the completion of its construction, since he died in 1745. His great-grandson is the most important figure and the one who more records are kept: Vicente Alberti Vidal. Born in 1786, he was a man of letters to the end of his days. His greatest legacy is the translations made, especially into Catalan, of works by great authors of the 18th century illustration such as Goldoni, Metastasio, Molière, Beaumarchais, Rodríguez Arellano and Fernández Moratín, among others.

Despite the fact that Vicente Albertí Vidal died without issue, the legacy of the Albertí family continued for generations in the family home located at Calle Isabel II, 9 in Mahón, with prominent figures such as his great-nephew Juan Orfila y Pons, Deputy in the courts nationals and Provincial Councilor for Menorca, among others. The building was owned by the Albertí family until the second half of the 20th centurywhen it was separated into different parts.

With most of the original façade reunited, Can Albertí 1740 Boutique Hotel is today a boutique hotel located in the center of Mahón, where you can breathe the traditional air that impregnated Menorca in another timebut with a renewed spirit where art and hospitality go hand in hand.
