The Spanish Balearic island of Menorca, sitting in the sunny Mediterranean Sea, is a centre for a megalithic culture known as the Talaiotic people, who constructed a whole host of megalithic structures unique to the island.  The burial chambers known as the Navetas being the earliest sites were followed by the T’ shaped monolithic Taula and the Talayots, large watch towers.  On this tour we will be exploring these stone monuments together with fascinating ancient cave structures and other places of interest.  The Hotel Jume, in the center of Mahon, whilst being quite basic is extremely popular and welcoming.

The weather in October averages above 20c, so pretty much like a nice warm British summer.


The tour will begin at Menorca Airport
