An amazing construction - you have to watch the video to see how Neolithic people cut the stones and dragged them into place. They even filled the chamber with sand before the roof slabs were inserted and then excavated it all to allow the roof to slowly sink into place. Amazing effort, and then you realise that the dolmen was... More

To fully appreciate this bronze age monument you need to watch the excellent video in the museum shop on site and realise the effort it took for stone age man to cut , transport and lay in position , these gigantic stones . The site itself is large while inside the monument is quite small compared to for example similar... More

There is work to be done to make this into a tourist attraction. Currently it appears as if they are in the process of restoring this historic site. Worth the visit if you are in town, however I would not recommend your going out of your way unless your an archeologist.

Free entry, although the written guide book in English is worth buying (to read in detail afterwards). Lots of coach parties tended top spoil the visual effect on a Sunday lunchtime, perhaps go midweek.

You will find out by watching the film at the visitor centre, you can do everything in about 30 mins so don't base a day out on this . What you do get is how ingenious people were 6000 years ago. It was another free attraction that was well worth a visit whilst in the area. Even though you learn... More

It is difficult to believe that these ancient burial mounds were built by humans so long ago. They are megalithic structures. The short film in the visitor centre is a must before visiting the chambers No fee for visiting which was surprising Access is relatively easy and parking was plentiful when we were there

Antequera offers a great variety of attractions including this phenomenal Dolmen - right on your doorstep - only a 20 minute walk from the central Coso Viejo square. No entry charge and an excellent introductory video along with at least 5000 years of history.

This apparent cave is actually an amazing structure. For full impact, make sure and watch the introductory film at the welcome center. If you ask, staff can change the language for you to English, Spanish, French and several other languages.

The Dolmens are well worth a visit, also called Cueva's on the map. There are 2 different Dolmens on the one site, which is the main and oldest Dolmens, they also have some good stone calendars and clock sculptures for telling the time and day and month. Very interesting. But you are really missing something if you forget to go... More
