Places in Spain - Ses Paisses, Mallorca

 
Located just 2km south of Arta is this Megalithic settlement. It is one of the most important monuments in Mallorca. Located on a low hill, in a wood of oak trees and surrounded by fields of almond trees, this Bronze-Age village dates back to 1000-800BC.
 
Ses Paisses
Some of the ruins are remarkably well preserved including the impressive portal (pictured left). The walls are up to 3m in height in places. The central stones to each home are also still in place (see below).
 
Ses Paisses

Some of the blocks used in the construction weigh up to eight tonnes. It is easy to imagine families living here. They all left in the first century BC and set up what is now known as Arta.

 

   
Ses paisses
This makes an interesting visit, however little information is available on site, so you have to use your imagination. There is a walkway round the site, signposted with arrows, however this is a little confusing so you will find yourself wandering about aimlessly, (unless it has been re-organised by the time you visit).
