Ca na Costa (megalithic tomb)

A burial site with a central circular chamber bordered with large vertical stone slabs, surrounded by three paved concentric circles and 22 radial stones, plus a corridor that leads to the middle of the construction. Discovered in 1974, the subsequent excavation revealed the remains of 8 individuals, 15 triangular and pyramidal bone buttons, fragments of flint and some examples of incised ceramics, which can now all be found in the Archaeological Museum of Eivissa and Formentera, in the main branch in Eivissa. The carbon-14 datings for the materials place the site around 2000 BC, which makes it the oldest megalithic site in the Balearic Islands. It was used for a long time, some 400 years, until approximately 1600 BC. It was declared a site of cultural interest in the archaeological site category in 1994.
