The tomb number 52 seen from the northeast.


This monument is one of the best preserved with its own tomb still visible. Two portal stones at a little distance from the entrance of the burial form a passage to the grave.
This tomb also revealed the method of construction of monuments like these. Five upright stones were assebled first, then they were surrounded by earth and small stones to form a low mound that would make the raising of the capstone easier.
The tomb has its axis aligned east-southeast to west-northwest (105°-285°).
