Naveta des Tudons

With a history dating back to 750 BC, Naveta des Tudons is a chamber tomb in Menorca. Used until 1200 BC, the tomb was not discovered until 1975. When it was, people found more than 100 bodies, jewelry, bones and other artifacts.

Built with stones, legend has it this site is one which was born from a lover’s quarrel. Apparently, giants were disputing the love of a young girl and agreed one would build the naveta, while the other dug a well for water. The person who completed their task first would marry the object of their affection. The giant building the well was the first to finish, but the other, enraged and jealous, hurled the last stone to complete the naveta at his head, killing him. Today, the naveta still is minus this stone.
These boatlike stone vessels can be found nearby Ciutadella, on the right side of the road, en route to Mahon.
