How the tomb looks like while approaching it from the muddy track.


This nice court tomb is in a private land. I reached the house and rang the bell. Two lovely kids came over and directed us to the monument. The road is completely unpaved, but luckily it is only 250 metres long. From the cattle gate we had to walk 380 metres to the south and then to the east before getting in touch with this tomb. As I said, it's a court tomb, but sometime in the 19th century the local people placed a large flat stone over it and the monument gained the false look of a dolmen.
The court tomb is aligned perfectly north-south, the court remains being on the south side. The court has a diameter of 6.5 metres.
Two burial chambers measure 2 metres by 2 metres. The entrance stones are 1.40 metres tall.
