The south end of the megalithic complex.


Thirty metres from the portal tomb in the same area there are 6 or 7 chambered cairns in this small prehistoric graveyard.
The whole complex is completely surrounded by a dry-stone wall. The access to the complex is granted by two or three stone steps protruding from the wall.
It takes a while to make out the place, because everything seems so confused and it's quite hard to tell where a tomb ends a where the other one begins. Walking safely amidst the stones is hard as well.
