Binicodrell Nou

Nowadays there are a few farms under the name "Binicodrell" because all of them are formed by lands that belonged to the primal farm Binicodrell, one of the oldest and most extensive landowner properties of Menorca, during the feudal era.

 According to ancient texts, Binicodrell was a large Talayotic period settlement (1000-700 B.C.). Today, only two talayots remain, of which the northern one is in a better condition; it has a zigzag shaped access ramp leading inside, although researchers disagree on whether it was built at the same time as the talayot. The southern talayot, on the other hand, is quite dilapidated.
You can still find fragments of pottery on the ground, dating from various eras: Talayotic, late Punic, Roman and Islamic. Inside the protected area of the site there is a necropolis.
