  • The tomb is located in a Shady Grove of cork oak. It is to find good and to commit. The multilingual explanations are interesting and complete your pleasant stay in a quiet, tranquil place. Especially since already the trip there takes you through beautiful landscapes with wide eyes.

  • Congratulations to the Organization and the guide of the guided "Walking among dolmens" Sunday, may 28. Affordable route with very didactic explanations but with scientific rigor.

  • The dolmen is worth visiting it, but unfortunately we find several families with children very rude. Jumping over the dolmen, playing to houses, etc, the father leaving all the jackets in the stones of the monument, eating and drinking. A penalty not value what we have, or that the people do not leave to others that they value it. Someone should take steps
