    Impresionante. Hay que visitarlo obligatoriamente
    Colosal monumento megalítico que en ningún caso debemos dejar de visitar si nos encontramos por la zona. Tiene un acceso muy cómodo desde la carretera intercomarcal EX-214, entre Aljucén y La Nava de Santiago. Si accedemos desde Aljucén, a unos 9 kilómetros y medio debemos estar pendientes, ya que veremos una indicación que nos dirige hacia la izquierda, en donde encontraremos un amplio parking donde dejar estacionado nuestro vehículo. Si accedemos desde La Nava de Santiago prácticamente a la misma distancia encontraremos la indicación, girando en este caso a la derecha. Desde aquí un bonito paseo de 10 minutos por un carril perfectamente señalizado entre dehesas en el que encontramos varios paneles informativos y nos toparemos con el impresionante dolmen. Poco más que contar, ya que los citados paneles nos explican perfectamente todo lo que necesitamos saber sobre su historia, construcción, cronología, etc. Únicamente disfrutar de él, ya que es impresionante, respetándolo y procurando que no quede ningún resto de nuestro paso.

    Megalithic structure & countryside
    This amazing dolmen marking a collective burial site is just off a country road and almost equidistant between the villages of Aljucén and La Nava de Santiago. It`s a 10-15 minute/1km walk from the car park to the dolmen which we did at midday like mad dogs and Englishmen....(and not advisable in July). It's in the middle of nowhere; a real Neolithic landscape surrounded by holm oaks (encinas), massive rocks, scorched grass and a deep silence with distant birdsong. You can imagine our ancestors swinging from tree to tree in this barren landscape.... The structure is impressive. How on earth did they move those massive stones? The burial chamber with its octagonal tomb at the end is situated within the protection of a a 'mother rock'. There are panels which give good explanations and are also in English

    Fora da cidade. Uma espécie de templo antigo (bem antes dos romanos).
    Fica fora da cidade, um tanto afastado. É ma espécie de templo/cemitério antigo (bem antes dos romanos), das primeiras ocupações humanas. No verão, evite as horas de sol forte..
