La Naveta des Tudons
There are several funerary chambers (navetas) on the island, but La Naveta des Tudons is the most impressive, and certainly the most famous of Menorca’s megalithic sites. The dry-stone building was constructed of huge limestone blocks, without the use of mortar, and is an impressive piece of architecture in itself. Inside are two chambers, one above the other, and it is thought that originally the building would have been six metres high. First excavated in the 1950s, it was found to contain over 100 graves and various bits of jewellery and other objects, thought to be the funerary possessions of those buried there, and now on display at the Museu de Menorca. For a small fee, you can look around the site, although entrance to the tomb itself is forbidden for conservation reasons.
