Mallorca (Majorca) Day Trips

Day Trips - Capocorb Vell - Prehistoric Village

Capocorb Vell is one of the largest and best preserved prehistoric villages in Western Europe. There are the remains of 5 talaiots, large circular or square buildings, and the remains of 28 houses. The talaiots are Bronze Age megaliths which are found on Minorca and Mallorca but oddly not on Ibiza. They date from the late second millennium and early first millennium BC.

The first scientific digs were carried out in the decade between 1910 and 1920 by the archaeologist Josep Colominas Roca under the patronage of the "Institut d'Estudis Catalans". There were also later studied by the archaeologists L. Ch. Watelin and Albert Mayand the latter a German.
