Sa Galera Mysteries of the beach
Located on the small island of Sa Galera, in which there are archaeological remains from the Chalcolithic period (2500-2000 BC), there is an archaeological site of special importance in the Mediterranean. Dating between the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC, it corresponds to the Punic ebusitana culture (of Ibiza), integrated into the Punic-Phoenician world dominated by Carthage.
The preserved structures, remains of a monumental building, cisterns and wells, belong to a sanctuary to which the Phoenician navigators, whom one day the prophet Ezekiel called Princes of the Sea, came, perhaps, to make their offerings and get This way, good omens and good sea in your travels through the Mediterranean.
The archaeological works began in 2012 and are still ongoing today. The set of archaeological structures, ceramics, metals, coins, etc., offer information of vital importance for the common history of the Mediterranean.
The project aims to finish the archaeological research, musealize and make the site visitable, as well as an interpretation center in the Platja de Palma, on the archeology of the area and on the Phoenician-Punic and Talayotic world.
With scarce public aid, the archaeological works are financed by craft markets and the sale of archaeological merchandising.
