Less than a kilometre from Artà, in an old holm oak wood to be found on a small hill, is the talayot village Ses Païsses. The archaeological group, over 3000 years old, was declared an Artistic-Historic Monument in 1946 and between 1959 and 1963 the Italian professor, Giovanne Lilliu, excavated there discovering most of the constructions.

The talayot village Ses Païsses is built round a central circular talayot, that dominates the group fulfilling its main mission of defence and control, and it was developed by the construction of different rooms, a hypostyle room and a defence wall. According to Giovanne Lilliu, the area was used until the II or I century BC, when its inhabitants together with other people from the area settled at the foot of the Sant Salvador hill, where the present day village of Artà is situated.

Facing the singular main entrance to the village, there is a monolith dedicated to Miquel Costa i Llobera (Pollença, 1854 - Palma, 1922), the author who set his poem "La deixa del geni grec" between Ses Païsses and the Caves of s'Ermità.

The talayot village Ses Païsses belongs to the Govern and can be visited from Mondays to Saturdays and the ticket costs 1,25 euros.
