Show sight on map

L Talaiot of Aurelio is located in the town of Aoun (Orca) and has been declared a cultural residence. S is an ethnic Talai village in the widest area of Aon, and although it cannot be appreciated as a whole, it was greatly damaged because of agricultural labor in the 1950s and 1960s and the construction of the northern end of the airport. These farm workers and public works unfortunately led to the destruction of a considerable part of the population. 'Being loaded...' Two Talait, the remains of a Talait house and a water intake system are preserved, although on the nearby farm, there are more records of structural remains, proving how large the village can be. First, the foundation of the house and a pair of artificial limbs or artificial burial caves have been located. This hole undoubtedly highlights the big-eared taleotta, because his monument is the most spectacular in the whole island. L Talaiot is also unique in that it preserves a porch at the top of the monument with access to a circular plant room.
