The Talaiot of Es Pou Celat

Not very much is left of the Talaiot of Es Pou Celat, near Porreres. The stone wall made of massive boulders is very impressive. I’ve known this wall for over twenty years now and I have witnessed that every five years or so, one or other of the big rocks has disappeared. Three of the boulders are missing now, if my recollection can be trusted. I suspect some foul play going on. Shame on you, whoever might be the culprit.

Behind the wall, one can enter the site and walk in and around the excavation of two or three rooms. There is also a circular one in the field of the next door neighbour. It is presumed that more remains of this prehistoric settlement are still buried in the surrounding fields.

Guided tours are offered at a different Talaiotic site, Son Fornés, near Montuïri. One of the tours will be tomorrow, April 25th, at 10h00. You would have to put your name down for attendance, by telephone (971.644.169). If you can’t make tomorrow, or if the tour is already full, the guided excursion will be repeated on May 30th, and on June 27th. There will be a charge of 4.50 €.

The photo was taken near Porreres, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 18th, 2010. The time was 14:53:20.

  1. I enjoy your photos and the useful information you provide very much. It must take you forever to put all this together. I have lived on the island for 15 years, and I am very interested in learning more about the social history of the island, particularly the 1930’s. Do you know of any resources available? Thanks.

    • hi lynn,
      best for subjects to do with the balearics is the fundacion bartolome march and its biblioteca. they do an online catalogue with a search function. their website is http://www.fundacionbmarch.es. luckily, an english language option is available. there, you go to the ‘palma’ section, and then to the ‘biblioteca’ option. an incredible good selection of foreign languages is available.
      good luck.
