The sweat house seen from the entrance of the field.


This nice sweat house stands on a steep slope in a private field, but it's signposted so I think the landowner agrees with visits to the site.

The domed structure is almost totally covered with dirt and grass, with only a few stones exposed above the lintelled entrance on the southwest (210°) side.
The inside is clean and all the stones of the walls have some soot on them, along with the green given by the humidity of the place.
The bottom had some water on the day of our visit, likely because of the heavy rains that hit the area for days.
The ceiling has a capstone along with a small opening to the sky.
