The two portal tombs.


We already came here many years before, on April 30th, 1997, but we couldn't resist to visit it again. The walk from the main road is 650 metres long.
There are two portal tombs in the same place. The main one is 2.50 metres tall at the front and about 1.50 metres tall at the rear. It's 3.50 metres long and wide. The capstone is huge and is at least 80 centimetres thick. The entrance of the tomb faces perfectly northeast. Behind the main tomb, 11 metres further south, there's a smaller copy of the main dolmen. It's 1.60 metres tall, 1.80 metres wide and about 2 metres long. The coordinates here are N 54°49'03" W 008°25'59", G 72205 96715. This second monument is in a worse condition than the big one and the capstone has collapsed on one side.
