Of Life and Death: Torre d’en Galmés – Cales Coves

Our hike will start in Torre d’en Galmés, one of the largest and best-preserved prehistoric villages of the Balearic Islands.  We will enjoy viewing its spectacular group of three talaiots,  its taula enclosure and the post-talaiotic dwellings (550-123 B.C), which are in exceptionally good condition.

We will then continue our hike along the island’s old horse trail (Camí de Cavalls) towards Cales Coves. This little cove, with its more than 90 caves, is the largest prehistoric necropolis in Minorca.  Both Punic and Roman ships found refuge in its clear blue waters and traded from there with the inhabitants of the island.

All along the paths that connect these important archaeological sites we will discover other hidden traces of the past and we will learn about the island’s ravines and their importance in the history of Minorca.

Our walk will take us through the Cala’n Porter beach resort for 1.5 kms.
