Talaiot de s’Heretat

About

Talaiot de s’Heretat is among the best preserved talayotic settlements found on the east coast of Mallorca.

The site is located somewhere on the fields, behind the golf courses of Canyamel.

Talaiot de s’Heretat was recently cleansed for weed, making it far more easy to explore what was once an entire village. It is an interesting archaeological site to explore for numerous reasons.

Firstly, this site is some 4800 square metres, which makes it extra real to understand how village was built. Secondly, the rare mix of talayotic constructions with their cylinder like forms, and square blocks seen from other periods. This tells us of a site that has been inhabited by humans for more than 3.000 years back.

Talaiot de s’Heretat is located on public ground, therefore you need no permissions prior to visiting it, an interesting stop on your walking route.
