Ruins of Talatí de Dalt
Carretera Maó-Ciutadella a 3 Km.

An important taula.
This is a village from the Talbot period, at the end of the Bronze Age.
A talaiot can be found right at the entrance to the ruins of Talatí de Dalt. The structure of the settlement is divided into the public area, where we find a sanctuary with the taula (megalith) in the middle, and the private area with houses and hypostyle rooms (storerooms). The unusual feature of its taula (megalith) is that it is in balance with a column that must have fallen on top of it accidentally, although even today both remain in equilibrium.
