Santa Monica Talayot

With all the fruit trees such as prickly pairs, vines and other unique fruit, plus the evidence of agriculture and areas cleared of rocks, Santa Monica is likely to be one of the first areas of Menorca for early settlers to have moved to from caves around the coast to start farming.

Santa Monica has a talayot, likely to be used as a communications post and beacon, with evidence of daily activity surrounding it and perhaps living quarters.

See the pictures in this gallery to see for yourself and if you visit, it is a 5 minute walk from the house.
