Description


The archaeological area of Talatí de Dalt is one of the most emblematic on the island, due to both its good state of conservation and its unusual taula.It consists of a talayotic settlement with its necropolis of artificial caves. It has preserved some important monuments and structures like caves (where burials and funerary rites were held), the taula sanctuary, sections of wall, talayotic houses, and several chambers with columns and stone roofs. This is a medium-sized settlement, which in its heyday accommodated nearly a hundred people. Their community must have consisted of livestock breeders and farmers, to judge from the pottery and animal remains found. Its use continued until the Muslim era.
