From the southeast. The slabs along the side make an amazing wall.


In the field where this wedge tomb is, there was a horse that was grazing. The lady that granted us to get inside had to call back the horse to make it safe for us to stay here.
The tomb is 11 metres long, 5 metres wide and 1.80 metres tall. Sadly, the inner of the tomb was used as a trash bin for broken bottles. The entrance faces southwest.
The view over the valley is amazing and it looks like a postcard.
