  • impressive if you think of the background, yet not a site you will spend hours at. In fact, after 30mins, you're finished and ready to go somewhere else
  • A fascinating bit of extremely ancient human history. It certainly makes you think about man's efforts to leave a mark. However, as a day out with children it filled about half an hour.
  • Utterly amazing demonstration of man's technology from 5000 years ago. Prepare to be humbled.
  • Poor information and even poorer staff . . . so only 1 star from me. I am swimming against the tide of other people here, I know! We got here just before half past four. The sign outside said closing was at 5.30 - plenty of time to see the dolmens. As we went in we could see the Reception area some way away with a group of people just going in, so we decided to view the dolmens first. We turned left and came immediately to an open space with a large piece of metal in the middle. A sort of square with a spike poking up through the middle. What was it? Well your guess was as good as mine, as there was nothing at all to tell us, no sign telling us who had made it and why, what it represented. We assumed that it was fairly recently constructed, but what was its connection with the prehistoric dolmens? Who knows. We then followed the path through badly-kept grounds (hardly could be called gardens) to the first dolmen. Take care - a not-very-visible small step to avoid. Nicely illuminated, but again no information whatsoever for visitors in any language. The second dolmen. Ditto. Just another pile of large rocks with soil on top. We saw the group leaving the Reception, so went there to gather information. As we approached the Reception entrance, a woman employee told us "We are shutting now". We looked at our watches - 4.53. "Oh, we thought it closed at 5.30". "Yes, it does, but we have to get everything closed up by then, so we are shutting now". What she meant, presumably, was that their working hours ended at 5.30, so they wanted all those annoying visitors out of the way well before then. :-) So we were turned away and went to the site exit. The large metal gate covering the entrance and exit was firmly shut - 4.55. Another employee came over and opened it to allow us to leave. It might have been interesting if we had been allowed to see the information hall, and if there had been information panels by each dolmen and that weird sculpture. The staff were employees-for-life of the Regional Government Junta de Andalucia, and clearly had no interest in actually promoting the site. There wasn't even a particularly good view. Yes, you could see the Peña de los Enamorados rock, but apart from that it was not very attractive: the railway line, the main road, the new motorway under construction. You get much better views up from the Alcazaba. Even the view from the car park of the Parador was more interesting than this. A total waste of time. Thank goodness we hadn't paid to get in. :-) .
  • Impressive to see the little cave but very small attraction. It is good to see but there is nothing around that
