The magnificent tomb number 7 seen from the west.


This is the most photograhed monument of the complex and it appears on the official material of the site and on most postcards.
This tomb merges the kerb rings of Tombs 1 and 3 and the passage tombs of the Tomb 4.
It stands on the ridge of a gentle slope at the most northerly point of the complex and it's visible from a distance, even from the nearby road.
The kerb has a diameter of about 11 metres.
The tomb is 2 metres tall and wide, and 1.88 metres long. The entrance looks at east.
Analyses from the excavations in the 1970's dated this tomb to 4200 BC.
