Dolmens de Menga y Viera : Michelin's recommendations
These enormous collective tombs situated at the foot of the Cerro de la Cruz go back to the Bronze Age. With their mastery of techniques, the builders had imagined a lateral trench to slide up the stones. The Dolmen de Menga (2500 BC) is a sort of artificial grotto with a vast oval chamber preceded by a gallery that is about 25 m long, 7 m wide and 2.7 m high. It has ten lateral monoliths and five covered. The chamber, covered by an enormous stone slab, is made up of seven large monoliths on each side and a stone chevet. Note the third monolith on the left n the gallery that has human representations an sun symbols. The Dolmen de Viera (2200 BC) is made up of a long gallery that ends in the funerary chamber, forming a sort of cube made up of four vertical monoliths and a large stone slab over the top. Not to be mssed!
