The semicircular court. The view from here is spectacular.


This court tomb dates from 3500 BC, hence it is 5500 years old!
It has three burial chambers along the same gallery, divided by stone jambs.
The court is bordered by 15 upright stones, set in a semicircular arrangement with a 5 metres diameter and a 4.5 metres depth, and faces north-northwest. The farthest chamber is about 2 metres long. The middle one is about 3 metres long. The chamber at the entrance is 1.5 metres long. All the chambers are about 1 metre wide.
The view from from up here is breathtaking and the visit was rewarded by a beautiful rainbow.
