Essentially prehistoric cemeteries, the cities of the dead known as necropolises date back on this island even before the Neolithic period here termed "talayotic" - which itself already stretched back to more than 1,000 BC. Near Calascovás, the Cala Morell Necropolis is Minorca's oldest as well as the most spectacular. It consists of 14 open cavities in the coastal cliffs, interconnected and punctuated by various windows and skylights - allowing the remains interred within to remain connected to the sky and sea (most Balearic necropolises are oriented toward the water), and imbuing the site with a particularly striking quality. Visitors can enter the tombs, and at no cost.
