The tomb in the backyard of the cottage. I wonder how it was possible giving a building permission in such a situation. The sign Fógra is proudly touching the southeast wall of the cottage.


This tomb is outside the area of the main group of tombs near the visitors' centre and is in a private field beside the road.
Shamefully a cottage has been built adjacent to the circle of stones that formed the kerb for this tomb, and I wonder how this circle has survived the building of a house without suffering damages. Another small circle, the Tomb 17, is on the north side of the house.
Nobody was in the cottage when we visited the place, the gates were closed and locked, so we took some photos from the road and the coordinates have been taken at the gate which is about 12 metres northeast from the stones. The circle is formed by 25 stones, a gap breaks the circle on the east side.
