1. Talaiot de Torelló
The Talayot of Torelló is located in the municipality of Maó (Menorca) and was declared of Cultural Interest. It is a talayotic village of the largest brick, although it cannot be appreciated as a whole, as it was very damaged by agricultural work and the construction of the northern head of the airport between the 1950's and Sixty of the 20th century. Unfortunately, these agricultural tasks and public works led to the destruction of much of the village. Two talayots are preserved, the remains of a Talayotic house and a water collection system, although in the neighboring estates more remains of structures have been documented that show the dimensions that could have this Population. Thus, house foundations and a couple of artificial burial caves or caves have been located. Of the site, undoubtedly, the great talayot of Torelló, the most spectacular of the island for its monumentality, stands out. The talayot also has the uniqueness of preserving a portal with lintel at the top of the monument that gives access to a circular room.
