    Among the things to see in Minorca, other the splendid sea, recommend a visit to this village of about 2500/3000 years ago. It is easy to reach by car and offers a sea of emotions. The area is wide and tells us a lot about the degree of civilization of the peoples honey in pre-Christian. The village is on a hill overlooking the sea, hence controlled the arrival of enemies or strangers, among which the Carthaginians and the Romans who had control over the island's Government. Some buildings have been partially remittances stood to give the idea of how it was at that time the village. I recommend a visit even if it is hot, then the sea is there to throw for a refreshing dip!

  • Best archaeological site to visit on the island if you only have enough time to see one. It is only 3 EUR a person and you can wander freely amongst the stone structures. Picnic tables are scattered around the park so you can bring food. There are washrooms at the entrance. Park office closes in the afternoon so plan accordingly. A must see place to experience Menorca's heritage and culture.
  • A large site with a lot of ruins from the Talayotic days. It gives you a great sense of how they built communities, as well as some of the interesting architectural concepts. If you are visiting some of the sites on the island, then this is definitely a stop you need to do.
  • Great place you can wonder round and touch the stones. Not sure how long you Willie able to do that.
  • Worth a visit, interesting site, nice vistas
