Naveta d'Es Tudons

The Naveta d'Es Tudons is a Neolithic Tomb in Spain, constructed between 2000 BCE and 1000 BCE.

This massive, megalithic tomb was home to more than 100 graves, belonging to a neolithic people that predated the iron-age Talaiotic culture on the island of Menorca. Built from enourmous stones stacked without morter, and walls packed with rubble, the tiny door leads to a passage to an upper chamber, and from there a door opens into a lower chamber. Called the ‘Naveta’ for it’s resemblance to an overturned boat, this remarkably well-preserved tomb is one of the most famous historical sites in Menorca.
