Cala Morell (Necropolis Caves)

The north coast of Menorca is a gem for history buffs. Here, visitors can find the Cala Morell, or Necropolis Caves. This site, which has regular excavations, is considered to be one of the most important archeological sites on the island.

This spectacular necropolis is made up of 14 man-made caves in a cliff, along with 20 small oval cavities thought to have been used as bone tombs or urns for infant burials. Take some time and explore this site, being sure to check out the “coves de forn,” small rooms inside the site, along with the large underground tombs.  The tombs highlight the craftsmanship of centuries past, complete with pillars, intricately decorated doorways and more.

Today, those interested in exploring this site beyond a simple walk through can actually participate in excavations through special programs offered by educations institutions.

Practical Info
