Views: 173

The Consell Insular and GOB have organised an excursion on foot for Sunday 19 November. It will go by different paths to Calescoves and area of great landscape beauty, where there is a talayotic necropolis composed of more than ninety caves and underground burial vaults excavated in the cliffs of the cove; a jetty also dating from the prehistoric time; a coastal establishment defined by a prehistoric wall; and a Roman shrine.

Places are limited and the list will be closed as soon as the maximum number of participants has been reached. You may reserve a place here:

The visit to the prehistoric site will be accompanied by an archaeologist who will give explanations. The walk is of low difficulty though the visit into the caves can require some effort. There will be a return bus (3 euros). It is expected to end at 13.30.

It is recommended that you contact other friends who are doing the walk in order to share a car. You will be able to see the complete information and meeting place when you have reserved your place.

We take this opportunity to say that, some days before, there will be a lecture. It will deal with navigation and will be given by Octavi Pons and Tòfol Mus. It will take place on Friday 17 November at 8 pm in the Museu de Menorca in Mahon.

The cycle Som taliòticos? Viure a Menorca abans i ara (Are we talayotic? Living in Menorca then and now) is a programme organized jointly between the Department of Culture of the Consell Insular and GOB.
