Megalithic Tomb of Ca na Costa

Alexander Bunkenburg The collective funeral monument of Ca na Costa, whose origins date back to the early Bronze Age, was probably used between 2000 and 1600 BC. It is located north of Formentera, between the body of water known as Estany Pudent and the tourist center of Es Pujols. Discovered in 1974, it has made a major contribution to the history of Formentera because, until then, it was widely believed that the oldest human settlements dated back at most Punic era. The excavations have allowed to bring to light the remains of several people as well as ceramic and lithic artifacts. (photo credits: A.Bunkenburg)
