A Naveta is a type of burial monument that is only found in Minorca.It was built with the cyclopean technique,that is,with medium sized stones fitted together without the help of mortar.
In the naveta,collective burials were carried out.indeed during excavations,bodies were found in a disorderly manner,though still accompanied by their most personal effects:jewelery,bone buttons,certain weapons etc.Also found were small pots,ceramic urns and decorated bone top.
The shape,that reminds one of an upturned ship,is what gave the name naveta (meaning small ship)to the monument.The entrance takes us into a small corridor that leads to the upper chamber and the second door leads to the lower chamber.The intermediate floor and and the upper deck are built of large flagstones that act as beams.
For safety reasons it is prohibited to enter or climb onto the naveta.
