Binisssfullet Talayotic Settlement
The Binissafullet talayotic settlement was in use from the 10th century B.C. on,
particularly during the fourth to the third centuries B.C., although remains from
the Islamic era indicate that it may have been inhabited until the mediaeval era.
Binissafullet preserves the characteristic elements of a talayotic settlement: a
talayot, a taula enclosure, a hypostyle hall, dwellings, remains of silos etc. The
taula, the site’s central element, had collapsed but was restored and placed upright
in 1990. Different excavations have provided a great deal of information on the use
of and activities on the headland. The remains of amphoras from the Carthaginian
era containing wine and meat, and the presence of fire in the taula enclosure
indicates that rituals were held here in connection with the fertility of animals,
crops and people. All the remains recovered during archaeological excavations are
preserved in the Museum of Minorca.
LOCATION
