Talayotic Route

The first traces of human presence date back to 2100 BC. Until the arrival of the Romans in 123 AD, the island's ancient history goes through different phases.

 

PREHISTORIC PERIOD

One of the most symbolic and exclusive buildings of Menorca are the navetas, burial collective constructions. Naveta de es Tudons in Ciutadell, dates back to the 9th century BC.

 

TALAYOTIC  PERIOD

Between 1000 and 700 BC the talaoits were built. Their main purpose was to keep watch over the surrounding area, as well as provinding a focal point for the communities living around them. During this time period, known as the Talayotic period, burial caves were dug out of the cliffs in calas and cliffs like the Calascoves (Alaior). 

 

POST-TALAYOTIC PERIOD

The post-Talayotic period started in 650 BC. This was the time when Menorca’s most unique and distinctive constructionswere built: the taula sanctuaries. They were used for human and soil fertility rituals.

In the settlements circular houses were built. The largest known is the Círculo Cartailhac that dates from the 2nd century BC in the Torre d'en Galmés (Alaior) settlement.

Talayotic Route

Camí de Cavalls

In Menorca there used to exist a beautiful path that went around the entire island through the coastline, crossing secluded calas, cliffs, forest and fields. It is the Camí de Cavalls (Horse Path), named after the constant circulation of British soldiers that guarded the coast on their horses during the island's British domination.

 

Nowadays this path has been recovered and signs have been put up for public use. Completing the full path, staying at the calas (camping is forbidden), can be an interesting and adventurous alternative to a traditional holiday, more in contact with nature. However, you can also decide to go through parts of the path, an excellent way of getting to know the coastline.
