|Es Tudons Naveta Chambered Cairn
|The Es Tudons naveta is one of the most emblematic talayotic monuments of
Menorca due to its excellent state of conservation, and because navetas are a type of
funerary construction unique to the island. Its shape like an upturned ship (‘nave’
in Spanish) gives it its name of ‘naveta’, and it was built using the cyclopean
technique typical of the era, basically assembling medium-sized stones without
mortar. Group burials took place inside, and during excavations a hundred
individuals were located, accompanied by grave ware and small pots where
offerings were deposited during funerary rites.
Located just off the main road from Maó to Ciutadella.
