The village was formed during the second British domination around a chapel called San Cristobal, in the Binicodrellet area, built in 1769 by Cristóbal Barber Ametller in honor of its patron saint. From 1912 to 1913 the newspaper "Llum Nova" ("NewLight") was published in this locality, one of the first bulletins in the Menorcan dialect. Until 1988 the town kept its official name in Spanish, San Cristóbal, which changed its name to Es Migjorn Gran. It was not until 1989 when it acquired the rank of municipality, when it was separated from Mercadal.
Time seems to have stopped since then, or at least it has passed in a quiet way keeping the usual charm. It is also the lifestyle of its people that has apparently not changed over the years.
In its narrow and charming streets we find some exquisite restaurants, some with views of the Menorcan countryside, where you can taste the authentic traditional cuisine of all times.
Its white streets are only altered by the colours used on some facades to rejuvenate them, a real chromatic contrast that is a pleasure for the eye.
A peaceful corner of the Mediterranean where you can enjoy the discreet charm of silence, or break it with a wise conversation with the hospitable people of the village, resting on a terrace.
It is Migjorn Gran shelters artists of all fields, painters, sculptors and there are especially numerous musicians, who seek their inspiration in the calm of the village.
Once full of harmony, it's time to set off on the green rural roads with great slopes. Going down to the sea we find some prehistoric villages, the fascinating landscapes that surround the ravines and a steep coast before reaching the beaches.
