Talatí de Dalt, Maó, Menorca, Spain
This temple complex and talayotic settlement is located 4 kilometers from the capital of Maó just off the ME-1, Menorca’s main highway. The unusual taula at the site has a pilaster leaning against it (it has apparently broken free of its base) and is surrounded by large menhirs. It is speculated that bonfires, ritual meals, and animal sacrifices were performed at the site. The complex includes two natural caves, the central talayot, the sanctuary with the taula and several rooms with columns and flagstones at the top. The temple likely was built between the 6th and 4th centuries b.c.e. The site has been excavated by Amics del Museu de Menorca (since 1997) and Arqueomenorca.
