Torre d'en Galmés

Torre d'en Galmés (also: Torre d'en Gaumés) is one of the most important excavation sites on the Balearic Islands.

Probably up to 900 people have lived within this horseshoe enclosure on a small hill.

It features:

  • 3 talaiots
  • one taula
  • one underground chamber
  • a water collection system
  • several houses
  • a yard belonging to a house from the 3rd century B.C.
Access to this talaiotic settlement is possible via a 2-kilometer tarmac road that runs to the left of the road between Alaior and the Son Bou beach.
