Naveta dels Tudons

Naveta dels Tudons, a Ciutadella de Menorca

The naveta des Tudons is a funeral monument from the ending period of the pretalayotic era (Bronze Age), built from huge stone blocks perfectly assembled in the shape of a vessel upside down. Its façade is flat and slightly curved, where we can find a door opening into a square hall, which communicates the lower chamber to the one above by means of a sloping chimney.

It seems that the Naveta de Tudons was supposed to be the chamber for the dead, as the inside was designated for the presence of the dead together with their personal belongings. They were also offered other objects such as bronze or china figures.

Address: kilometre 40 of the road between Maó and Ciutadella.
