Minorca will today celebrate the 200th anniversary of being returned to Spanish rule when the Treaty of Amiens was signed in 1802. Environment Minister Jaume Matas will preside over today's festivities and open the exhibition ”1802: Spain over two centuries and the return of Minorca” at the Museum of Minorca. The exhibition at the museum has been designed to recreate the atmosphere of life in Minorca in 1802. The exhibition includes over 200 paintings, sculptures, drawings and architect's plans from the era. The exhibition has been put together by the curator of French, English and German art at the Prado Museum, Juan J. Luna and is divided into seven sections, each of which reveals unknown facts about Minorca under foreign rule.
