The most important prehistoric settlement in the balearic islands

The ruins of this prehistoric settlement are immense. During its peak, over 900 people lived here. This small culture thrived throughout the Balearic Islands during the Iron Age, but the most interesting and complete ruins are found in Menorca.

This town is located on top of a hill and was strategic due to its ability to communicate with other similar towns and lookout towers in the area. These kinds of towers are called Talaiots. The highlight of the ruins are the “taulas,” a kind of ceremonial monument of unclear purpose, and a complex irrigation network.

A talaiot village

This town is pretty big and still has various stone houses, cisterns, and “taulas.” You can enter the homes which still have their stone roofs intact and imagine what it was like to live there.

I’ve never seen so many stone structures in my life; it was like being in the Flintstones.

From the talaiots to the romans

This Talaiot village is located on a hill, a perfect place to watch over your territory in that age. It was an active settlement from the early Iron Age to the Roman era.

Here, you can find three talaiots in the public area and another public area that extends to the bottom of the hill.

More than three thousand years of history

Torre d'En Games, is a town Talayótico, Menorca's largest and one of the best preserved. My experience was unique, as I move to more than three thousand years. If you close your eyes you can imagine and carry the day, as they lived, how they worked as defending the opposing tribes. An inexplicable emotion, you have to live it to realize the feel touch those ancient stone. Recommended for those who love history.

Más de tres mil años de historia

Torre d´En Games, es un poblado Talayótico, el más grande de Menorca y uno de los mejor conservados.
Mi experiencia fue única, pues me traslado a hace más de tres mil años.

Si cierras los ojos te puedes imaginar y transportar a la época, como vivían, como trabajaban como se defendían de las tribus contrarias.

Una emoción inexplicable, tienes que vivirla para darte cuenta de la sensación que da tocar esas piedra milenarias.
Recomendable para aquellos amantes de la historia.

Il y a énormément de sites archéologiques sur l'île de Minorque mais celui-ci est un des plus importants et un des mieux conservés ! On y découvre des anciennes maisons, des talayotes, des citernes... Très intéressant !
