Pin It

There are a couple of prehistoric sites on this island, but this monument, best described as being a stone structure about the size and shape of a large, upturned yacht. Thought to be a funeral monument, there are several similar navetas on the island but this is the largest – apparently only the bones of the deceased were interred in these tombs. It's thought to date from between 1500 and 2000 BC, and was excavated in the 50s.

Get to Naveta dels Tudons from Ciutadella on the road to Mahon.
