Had read about these sites and stopped to have a look on opur way back from Ciutadella to Mahon. Cost 1.8€ each (free some days) and well worth it. The site is quite large and interesting to see the different buildings and caves.

We have been lucky, monday was a free entrance, it was quite fine. Nothing special, lot of excavation needs to be done. We appreciated the cave, nice atmosphere and not so many people.

This prehistoric site is enormous. Informative boards are placed around the site explaining in various languages about life and the use of the buildings. There are caves and sanctuaries and houses which you can go in. If you don't like ruins this isn't for you....More

I expected to ramble through a few rocks but it was so much more than that. First I came to the visitors centre where I read all about the ancient settlement dating back beyond 1500BC. I also saw some artefacts which had been excavated. Then...More
