Towards 1400 B.C., the native civilization of the island produced various large stone constructions known as talaiots. This word gives the name of this prehistoric period of the island: the Talaiotic period.

Some settlements from this time are Trepucó, Talatí de Dalt, Torre d'en Galmés or Son Catlar. Each one has a monument of worship called a taula and artificial caves. You can see as well a few necropolis, such as Calascovas o Cala Morell.

The pics were taket at the settlement of Talatí de Dalt, situated 4 kilometres from the city of Maó.
