Sa Canova. Carretera Artà- Colònia de St. Pere

We find the site of Sa Canova in the possessió of the same name, some meters away from the road between Artà and Colònia de Sant Pere. The place is well known for the monumental Talayot preserved in it, popularly called Sa Clova des Xot. It is a circular Talayot of 5.5 meters of height and 16.2 meters of diameter, its central column measuring 4.5 meters. Its dimensions make it one of the most impressive Talayots of the island. The function of these constructions varies from place to place but, generally speaking, they related to the identity and territorial boundaries of different communities. Actually, this Talayot was part of an old Talayotic town as we can observe the remains of walls and other structures that were, perhaps, rooms from other circular and square Talayots, and possibly a sanctuary. The foundation of these towns in the island date circa 1000 - 800 BC.
