Antequera Dolmens Site,Spain


This site is a serial property made up of three megalithic monuments:
Menga Dolmen,
Viera Dolmen and
Tholos of El Romeral,
(and two natural monuments, La Peña de los Enamorados and El Torcal de Antequera.)
Built during the Neolithic and the Bronze Age out of large stone blocks that form chambers and spaces with lintelled roofs (Menga and Viera) or false cupolas (El Romeral), and used for rituals and funerary purposes, the Antequera megaliths are widely recognised examples of European Megalithism. The megalithic structures are presented in the guise of the natural landscape (buried beneath earth tumuli) and their orientation is based on two natural monuments: La Peña de los Enamorados and El Torcal. These are two indisputable visual landmarks within the property.
