Galicia and Northern Portugal
1. Galicia (North-West Spain)
This is probably the best-known megalith of Galicia, the Dolmen de Ageltus, also known as Dolmen de Axeitos. Several kilometres north of Ribeira (or Santa Uxita) but you can't miss it - there are many signposts, even on the highway! The dolmen itself is approx. 1.90 m high and the land owner told me "I will blast up the damn thing one day because of all the f.. campers coming here." I hope he won't.
Dolmen de Dombante, 45 km SW from La Coruņa, 3 km N from Baio Grande.
Near the road La Coruņa - Fisterra, 4 kilometers from Bardoias, this small dolmen stands in the fields.
This very nice Dolmen de Tordoia (or Dolmen de Cabaleiros) stands near Ponte Pedra on the road to Tordoia.
Dolmen in the fields between Oliveira and Baiņas, approx. 10 Km from Dumbria.
This perfect miniature menhir stands in the middle of a small eucalyptus wood near Santa Lucia (20 km N from Pontevedra).
One of the most beautiful dolmens of Galicia is situated on the Western bank of the Embalse de Salas See at the
southern border to Portugal, near Muiņos. Surrounded by the high mountains of Serra do Geręs (National Parc), it overlooks an ancient megalithic area with many (smaller) remnants.
Casola da Moura, another huge dolmen only several hundreds meter from the dolmen which is shown above.
2. Now we change to Northern Portugal.
The charming Dolmen de Barroca near Viana do Castello is in the northern-most part of Portugal.
Dolmen de Châ.
3. Region of Viseu (Portugal Middle-North)
Dolmen de Arca, 50 km W from Viseu, near San João do Monte.
Orca de Pendhile, North of Viseu, 9 km east of Castro Daire.
Last but -oho- Dolmen de Carapito, the largest megalithic monument in the Beira Alta region. The covering stone has
been removed, probably with a little help of the Olle-Nobel invention. It lies in several pieces some 50 meters from the monument.
