The island's talayotic settlers are the most important of Europe. The creators of these mysterious works seem to be giants if one bears in mind the size of the stones used in their different buildings. We can travel back, along the mysterious paths totally integrated in the natural surroundings, thousands of years while observing the splendour and size of the "taules". These monuments, which where supposed to be sanctuaries during the period they were built, are formed by two large rock slabs resembling a T and receive their name from "table" ("taula" in the Minorcan dialect). The tallest is the one at Trepucó measuring 4,20 metres.
Continuing with our prehistoric trip we encounter the navetas, pointing out the Naveta des Tudons; one of the oldest monuments in Europe; a burial naveta resembling a vessel up side down. Other constructions sure to captivate us are the talaiots : great piles of stones that emerge from hills and plains.
The prehistoric settlements were authentic cities designed fro worshipping the dead. Among the maze structure one can admire, as well as the taules, navetas and talaiots, sepulchral caves or wells.
