Naveta Des Tudons
As well as having beautiful beaches and amazing towns and cities, the island is covered with very, very old buildings, villages, monuments and houses.
We visited several of these, including the Naveta Des Tudons, which is the oldest building in Europe, it is 3,000 years old! It was used as a burial chamber. The first time mummy and the others visited, in 2005 they went inside it! Now the entrance has a grill so you can’t go in. It is just off the main road, not far from Cuitadella.
On our last day, we visited one of the ancient villages. Mummy, Leah and Luke climbed a talyot, very old buildings which people think were used as watchtowers. There is usually a Taula in a village too, a huge T shape monument, which no-one really knows what they were used for. One legend is that they were tables for giants! Wow!
