Nice hike and nicely presented dolmen.

The dolmen de lacara is a well presented dolmen site that is easily accessible and worth the small hike to find. Like so many dolmen, the ages have not been kind, but the general feel of the site is authentic and not sensationalized. Good for lovers of megalithic history.

Off the beaten path but a real connection to the past

This dolmen, an ancient megalithic burial site from 5000 years ago, is quite well preserved. You will be asking yourself how on earth they did it and why on earth they went to such trouble. And whil the earthen covering is no longer in place above the stones, the site is remarkably intact for such an ancient structure. You have to walk about 1500 meters (about a mile) in order to get to it from the parking area, but it is worth the effort.

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
