The Passage Tomb V seen from the rear. It's a very low mound, with all the stones exposed, a visible kerb all around and a lone stone at northwest.


The Passage Tomb V is a low and flat mound with a diameter of about 10 metres surrounded by several kerb stones and a central burial chamber completely exposed. The stones of the chamber and the passage are a bit messy. What is clearly visible are the vertical stones at the back of the chamber and a sill slab at the entrance of the gallery. One of the stones at the beginning of the passage has a motif in bas-relief of four concentric circles, the outer one with a diameter of 25 centimetres.
The tomb is 4.70 metres long and 2.65 metres wide.
The rear of the chamber is aligned towards the Tomb T at northwest (300°).
We came here for the first time on June 15th, 2001.
