Torre D’En Galmés

Torren d'en Galmés in Alaior, Menorca, Balearic Islands

Torre d’en Galmés is the largest talayotic settlement on Minorca, located on a hill. It consists of a public area, were we can find a enclosure with three talaiots, where the people may have gathered at one time of the past to celebrate their ceremonies. This space is at the high part of the hill, where we can also visit the taula area with its fallen capital and a room area. At the further bottom side we can see a covered hypostyle made of slabs sustained by columns. Archaeological works have revealed that this settlement was inhabited many centuries even after the Roman period.

The Torre d’en Galmés can be reached by the road to Son Bou, where we will find a deviation which will lead us to the site.
