About three miles from Mahon Port are rock pilings that leave people awe-struck. Talatì de Dal is home to T-shaped stone monuments on Menorca – known as Taulas – which date back to 1000 BC and 300 BC and were a part of the Talayotic culture.
Not much is known about this prehistoric site, although it is considered to be one of the most fascinating on the island. Researchers aren’t sure of the significance of these rock formations. Some say it has religious implications, others suggest these were a part of science, and others hypothesize these rocks were part of ancient buildings support systems. What is not debated is the attraction of these rocks – regardless of the reasoning, people come and visit and marvel at the large formations.
A visit to this site includes exploring the Taula, ancient homes, and even a set of caves. For those seeking more than just this one Taula, there are a few spread out on the island.
From Mahon Port, head towards Ciutadella on the main road. Turn left just past the 4 KM sign.
