In the locality of Es Migjorn Gran there are many prehistoric remains, among which the talaiots of Sant Agusti Vell and in the valley to the south of the village are two caves which are well worth a visit, one called Ceava dels Coloms is around 24 metres high and some 15 metres wide. The second is more difficult to find and some may find it a little dark and eerie, especially as it is a haven for bats!
