Part of the preparation for the Consell de Mallorca’s new archaeological route involves carrying out recovery and conservation work at two important sites.

On August 30, the first vice-president of the Consell de Mallorca and councillor for Culture, Heritage and Linguistic Policy, Bel Busquets, and the island’s director of Heritage, Kika Coll, visited the archaeological sites of Es Baulenes (Porreres) and Es Racons (Llubi). Recovery and conservation work is being done at both sites thanks to financial aid from the Consell de Mallorca.

The aim is to open the Es Baulenes site to the public in September, as access to it is currently restricted. At the Es Racons site, restoration work is being done on the two main talaiots (Bronze-Age monoliths from the Talaiotic Culture) of the monumental complex.

The island’s Directorate of Heritage is currently preparing an experimental project involving the creation of a route around Mallorca’s archaeological sites. The island institution will be responsible for designing, maintaining and signposting the route. The aim is to make these areas of great historical value more accessible to people.
