Holiday makers who would be interested in learning about ancient history during a Menorca villa break this year have been encouraged to visit the site of Torralba d'en Salord near Alaior.
According to the Menorca tourist board, the island itself is an "open-air museum" that is home to a number of stone monuments offering an insight into a fascinating past.
People who would like to learn more about the Talayotic culture associated with the Balearic Islands can head to Torralba to see fragments of walls, caves and the remains of two towers.
The "most spectacular feature", according to the local tourism agency, is the 'taula' monument, which stands at a height of 4.3 metres and consists of a large rock laid horizontally on top of a vertical stone.
This spectacle is unique to Menorca, with experts unable to discover why there are no similar monuments in Mallorca.
People who would like to learn more about local history and culture during their Menorca villa holiday can visit institutes such as the Municipal Museum of Ciutadella and the Military Museum in Es Castell.
