As so many reviewers have said, these Dolmens are amazing. Although Romeral Dolmen is reached down a dusty route and has limited facilities, Menja and Viega are not only more impressive but have been provided with off road parking and an excellent Visitor Centre. This has a shop, well presented explanatory film in several languages, and toilets. The staff were... More

Recently given UNESCO, these Dolmens are unique as they represent three typical dolmens that are from different periods and not seen elsewhere. One looks out to the giant in the mountain rather than to the sun, which is the only type like this known. They are very well kept, and free, how magical is that!

These ruins are anything but ruined. Dating back aprox 7000 yrs they are free to visit and are in 2 seperate areas. They are under the earth and show the level of craftsmanship at the time. The area has been settled for thousands of yrs and the town of Antequera has many attractions .A must see

Having read much about the Dolmens it was good to finally see them. It was a nice walk on a cool day, we went fairly early in order to appreciate the Dolmens without being crowded.

Most important Dolmen if not megalith in the World. The implication of the alignment to Le Pena mountain face cannot be overstated

An easy walk from the centre of town though it is on a bus route for the less active. It is best to visit Reception for information before walking round the site. Amazing structures and it's free

Just a simple cellar-like structure, but it's a bit of history! Tourist office can organise a taxi for 18 Euro, to visit a couple of Dolmen - good value for 4

Don't get too excited to learn any in-depth history--essentially you watch a video and then explore the 2 caves

Well perhaps not but certainly worth a visit eapecially as it's free. Only a short walk from the city centre and the film is very helpful and explains how the dolmens were constructed.

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
