The Balearic Islands have more possibilities than their own tiny little beaches. This time, Isabel Sánchez show us the way to prehistoric sites found in the island of Menorca to discover different places on the island that retrieve European capitals’s attractiveness. In today’s sonic journey we head to Torre d’en Galmés ; where the traffic in the Mediterranean Sea was controlled.

To know the Menorcan people and their origins, we need to go inside and make at least a trip to one of the prehistoric sites of the island, which are many, such as for example, the Torre d’en Galmés, which is the most important prehistoric village of the Balearic islands, where it is estimated that could live up to 900 people. The truth is to look at and walk among the ruins is fascinating, we can go through the time toward this village that it is believed that exercised a strategic supremacy over other villages on the island. In addition to the Torre d’en Galmés Menorca retains several megalithic structures. The talayot period, which comes from talayot, stone structure, with taulas and navetas that constitutes an exceptional archaeological heritage. Only when we think that our ancestors lived here gives the land a force and special charm.

Continuing our tour coastal, San Bou is the longest coastline in the island with 3km of white sand and turquoise water, clear, sparkling, althought there is a hotel in the east and it is very crowded, from which we enjoy 100% if we continue to Sant Tomas, where we will stop. In Sant Tomas there is a row of bays, each more beautiful, surrounded by a delightful green that reaches the coast, red rocks, seaweed, white beaches and blue waters..
