An unusual piece of property came up for sale recently when the owners of the ‘Taula’ on the Camí de Binissafullet (Sant Lluís district) decided to put it on the market. The asking price of 130,000 euros will buy the purchaser 16,000 sq.m. of land which includes the ruins of a Talayotic village (c.1400-800 B.C.) and a small pine grove.
The Council had been interested in acquiring this piece of Menorcan history but were unable to afford the purchase price, especially with the current cutbacks in spending.
Bonnin Sanso are the estate agents faced with the task of selling the archaeological site and land, but Director Joan Torres said that they had been unable to find out from the Council what restrictions would be applied. The company has now moved its board from the position shown in the photograph to a ‘more discreet’ location.
