Trepucó talaiotic village
Covering 5,000 m2, Trepucó is one of the largest Talaiotic sites in Menorca, even although only a small part of the original settlement has been preserved.
Trepucó megalithic village
During the Second Punic War (218 BC) Trepucó village was partially destroyed and was then abandoned after the period of Roman dominance (123 BC). Today, the fragments of the cyclopean original wall, two talaiots, the taula enclosure and the remains of some dwellings are all that remain. The visitor area lies inside an enclosure surrounded by a star-shaped dry-stone wall built in the eighteenth century. Outside the enclosure there is a small talaiot and a few other dwellings. The domestic utensils found during excavations can be seen in the Museum of Menorca in Maó.
• There is no entrance charge.
