Talayot Capocorb Vell

We approach the Capocorb Vell talayot, one of the most important and best-preserved talayotic settlements in Mallorca from the Iron Age.

Near Cala Pi, in the municipality of Llucmajor, is one of the most important historical settlements in Mallorca: Capocorb Vell.

What to see in Talayot Capocorb Vell

Capocorb Vell is made up of three circular talayots, two square talayots, rooms attached to them and a room that could have been a sanctuary in a later period. All of them occupying an area of half a kilometre at an altitude of 100m above sea level.

Talayots are constructions from the Talayotic culture developed in the Balearic Islands during the Bronze and Iron Ages. They are made of large blocks of unhewn stone laid without any mortar. Although their function is not entirely clear, it is thought that they may have served as watchtowers within the settlement or as symbolic elements to demonstrate the power of its inhabitants.
