    Menorca an open-air archaeological museum

Archeology in Menorca

More than 1,500 archaeological sites make the island of Menorca an open-air museum. Discover the fascinating history of Menorca through its archaeological sites, an experience that will give you a glimpse of ancient times and show you the island's cultural heritage in depth. This Mediterranean island, with its peculiar megalithic constructions of different types, can be visited 365 days a year. Cyclopean techniques were used to build walled enclosures, funerary tombs and hypogeum, talayots, towers, navetas and taulas. Among the most important sites on the island are the Talayotic settlements of Torre d'en Galmés and Son Catlar, with constructions from different periods ranging from the Bronze Age to the Roman period. The necropolis of Cala Morell and Calescoves, the taulas of Talatí de Dalt or Torralba d'en Salort and of course the Naveta of Tudons, which is beautifully preserved. Menorca also has its share of Roman remains, such as the Roman city of Sanisera in Es Mercadal, and in the necropolis of Sanitja. Both the Museu de Menorca and the municipal museum of Ciutadella contain the valuable historical items from different excavations, which will reveal information about the fascinating prehistory of Menorca, the smallest of the Gimnesias (as the Greeks called Mallorca and Menorca, the two largest islands of the Balearic archipelago). Don't miss it!
