The court of the tomb.


This court tomb is atop a hill, but the landowner at the farm halfway to the top didn't allow us to get closer with our car or to park it in his property. We had to leave it down on the road and climb along a path 560 metres long with a rise of 66 metres.
From up there the view is really breathtaking!
The court is made of 9 stones and is 4.50 metres wide and 3 metres long, facing southeast (120°). The first burial chamber is about 1.50 metres long, the second one is about 2 metres long, both are 1 metre wide. The overall length is 7 metres.

UPDATE: June 6th, 2011 - A new visit to this court tomb with new photographs. The first six photos in this page are from the first visit in 2003.
