Description

Megaliths.

It is a prehistoric village from the pre-Talaiotic period.

It has important Megalithic monuments. The inhabitants of this village lived here until the Middle Ages arrived. The settlement had a public area and a private one. In the former, 3 talaiots and the sanctuary inside a 'taula' (megalith) are outstanding. In the second area, circular houses can be found. The rooms are separated from one another by walls emerging radially from the centre of the house. Adjoining the house was another room called the 'hypostyle room' which might have been a kind of storeroom. The village also had a system of using water that worked using cavities hollowed out of the rock.
