Dolmen visit

I have visited dolmens in other countries but never of the scale of those in Antequera, they are really amazing, well worth a visit.

Didn't know there was anything like this in Spain. Very similar to those in Orkney. We took a taxi there and he waited for us. We went to all the other dolmens too. Good half day trip.

Went on a good tour of the dolmen site. Pathway goes into steep mud track on the way up. Great views from the top. You can go inside and it is well laid out. There is an information centre and you can see a video of the site .

After we have seen the Viera Dolmen, we have only to walk about 50 meters to reach our second goal, the “Menga Dolmen” who is supposed to be the largest in Europe with nearly 30m long, the tomb has three different sections and famous for its geographical location, due to this you have the morning sun who is shining along...

Sorry - just a load of very large stones to me. However, they have the most STUNNING and completely unrecognised sculpture.

We were brought to a couple of neolithic 'dolmens' just outside Antequera, the Dolmen de Menga and Dolmen de Viera. The Menga dolmen is actually a tumulus that is aligned with a point on a nearby mountain, the Peña de los Enamorados, so that the sun shines straight into it on the summer solstice, the 21 June.

We chose Antequera because of the New York Times "50 places to visit in 2017". The dolmenes were especially interesting and it does seem to be Spain's Stonehenge!

One of the key sites to visit in Antequera. Visited both sites but would have preferred a better description (in English) prior to visiting the site. Reception of great assistance & provided with a flyer in English which gave a fair description of the site. There was a display area showing a film but as would be expected inSpanish so... More

Before you climb the hill to see the dolmens, make sure to take the time to view the interesting and informative video which outlines how the dolmens were constructed. These neolithic monuments are impressive!
