Serra da Aboboreira Megalithic Set

Since 1978 that Serra da Aboboreira (Aboboreira Mountains) has been the scene of a systematic study of its archeological values, among which are the monuments known as megalithic. These are funerary monuments designing the landscape. These dolmens were constructed with stones (lithos) of medium or large dimensions (mega), which were laid in a, more or less, vertical position. Over these, it was still placed a lid, also of stone. These containers were covered by an artificial mound of earth and stones (dolmen).

From the megalithic set that still existes in this region, we advise a visit to at last, five monuments, where you will find:

Dolmens, open or closed, which remained exposed the stone protection (Outeiro de Gregos 2 and 3);

Small dolmen with cover of small dimensions (Meninas do Crasto 3);

Dolmen of Outeiro de Ante 1, built in a natural elevation soil, which is distinguished in the landscape. Unfortunately, most of its mainstays were cut;

Dolmen of Chã de Parada, a National Monument since 1910, with great dimensions, pictures in the mainstays and an access corridor.
