Looking at the tomb form the rear. This is the southwest side.


This court tomb has huge dimensions, but unfortunately the day we visited it the grass was 80 centimetres high and most of the stones were hidden in the green.
The tomb is about 13 metres long, 2.40 metres wide, 1 metre tall at the court side and 85 centimetres tall at the rear side. The monument is aligned northeast (30°).
To reach it we walked northwards for 80 metres in the grass and the mud. Sadly the badly mantained area didn't allow us to see more of the details of this monument.
