The basics

Visitors to the taulas site at Talatì de Dal can explore the Stonehenge-like monuments, along with ruins of ancient Talaiotic homes and a set of burial caves. For those seeking more than just this one taula, there are some 35 of these stone megaliths scattered across the island, a dozen of them intact. The megaliths get their name from the Catalan word for “table,” as they often feature flat, table-like tops. They’re found nowhere else in the Balearic Islands.

Theories of the Taulas

Researchers aren’t sure of the significance of these rock formations. Some say they have religious implications, others suggest they might have been used for scientific purposes, and others hypothesize these rocks were part of the support system of ancient buildings. One of the best supported theories purports that the taulas were aligned with lunar movements.
