Very kind staff. See the museum before you visit the site "Talaiot Son Fornés" (and do remember, if you are searching for a talaiot site on Google maps,... More

A bit of a drive from Palma or Alcúia and Pallença, but if you enjoy archaeology or ancient history, this is worth the 90 minute drive from any of the above cities.

Son Fornes is a superb Taliotic site and the nearby archaeological museum in Montuiri is the essential starting point for anyone wanting to know more about Pre/Post and Taliotic culture. Great little museum in an old mill at edge of the town and a really knowledgeable and helpful curator . Highly recommended.
