Naveta d'Es Tudons Neolithic Site

Europe's most ancient building

Discovered in the mid-19th century but not excavated/restored by archaeologists until 1959, the Naveta d'Es Tudons (naveta meaning boat, a reference to its shape, similar to an overturned small boat) was found to be a funerary site containing human remains, and dating back to these islands' so-called Talaiotic culture of the Bronze Age, as far back as 2000 BC. It's more than 13 metres (43 feet) high, and was built without any type of mortar. Unfortunately, visitors are no longer allowed inside the structure, but they can go right up for a close look at an extraordinary site thought to be Spains's oldest manmade structure.
