Live archaeology! - Archaeological sites in the Balearic
The stones will talk to you
The Balearic Islands treasure more than 1500 archaeological sites in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. Find out more about the archeology of the island.
The Balearic Islands are an open-air museum, where you and your family can discover the remains of all the civilizations that have visited this area since the beginning of times. Menorca is something very special: more than 1,500 finds with caves and buildings of thousands of years ago, with huge stones as if erected by giants. Some of these buildings attract archaeologists from all over the world. This is the case of the naveta dels Tudons and theTalaiot settlement of Dalt, whose constructions will make you marvel.
In Ibiza you can follow the footsteps of the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, especially in one of the most important finds of the Mediterranean area, the necropolis of Puig dels Molins, a huge cemetery of the ancient world. On Majorca you will discover the Talayots, the characteristic towers of the island, which can be visited in impressive finds such as Son Fornés. And a visit to the ancient Roman town of Pollentia, in Alcúdia, takes you to the first centuries of our era.
