Sa Punta de n’Amer was declared a “Natural Area of Special Interest” by the Balearic Islands Government in 1991.

Sa Punta de n’Amer was declared a “Natural Area of Special Interest” by the Balearic Islands Government in 1991. The caves of “Ses Crestes” and “Ses Pedreres” were used as dwellings and the pottery found there shows that they were inhabited during the pre-Talayotic period. There is also a Talayot right in the centre of the Punta.

The 12th century defence tower known as “Es Castellet” is historically significant. Watch was kept from here against enemy ships on the coast.

Inside, you will find a historical museum where visitors can view a small display of objects and old weapons and documents relating to the island’s defence.
