Puerto de Maó – Poblado talayótico de Trepucó


  1. Start off from the Sea Terminal of the port of Maó.
  2. Go east from Moll de Ponent towards Moll de Llevant for approximately 1.9 km.
  3. At the end of the esplanade you will see a steep slope known as Cuesta de Corea on the right – turn up the slope.
  4. At the top of the slope is a roundabout. Take the 3rd exit into Avenida Fort de l’Eau and go on approximately 260m until you reach Plaza de Abu Umar square.
  5. At the roundabout you find here, take the 2nd exit and continue straight on towards Avenida de Francesc Femenias until you come to another roundabout.
  6. At this roundabout, take the 2nd exit into Avenida de Francesc Femenias/Via Ronda and go on for approximately 600 m.
  7. You will come to another roundabout where you should take the 3rd exit into Camí de Trepucó/Me-2/Me-4.
    At the start of the road you’ll see the municipal cemetery on the left, as well as the hermitage of Gracia, patron saint of the town.
  8. Continue straight along the Camí de Trepucó, following directions to the Talayotic settlement of Trepucó. Park your vehicle and you’ll soon be astonished by the enormous dimensions of this settlement.
  9. The prehistoric settlement of Trepucó extends over 5,000 m2 and was originally walled. To the south you will see two Talayots (megaliths): the first is more spectacular due to its large dimensions, a circular floor plan with a star shape in the centre of the fortification. The second, smaller construction is built into the perimeter wall to the north east of the settlement.

In the south is a centre of worship with the biggest “taula” (altar) on the island. You can admire five Talayotic houses of different types.
