The research of the history of the Menorca island gives a theory that more than three and a half thousand years ago an ancient civilization was settling Menorca. The folks possessed valuable knowledge and left numerous mystique monuments. Modern scientists name them “ships of dead” as the function and identity of scale stone constructions is still the greatest mystery of the island.
By their appearance and look these ancient monuments resemble huge cut pyramids. These relics of Menorca are far older than the well known Pyramids of Egypt. Scale constructions are far not the only prehistoric monuments and landmarks of the island as its territory numbers more than one and a half thousand of the so called navetas (burial chambers). These stone constructions resemble bottom up turned boats being the way the first dwellings of the islanders looked like.
The island has preserved mysterious taulas as well. These are high T-shaped towers which probably served for religious rituals. Travelers looking to learn more about archeological discoveries of the scientists should set off to the Torre-d’en-Galmes area which has preserved numerous interesting objects and relics aged thousands years. The area features ancient ruins and mysterious religious structures.
