This Dolmen should be viewed together with the other two at the main visitor site. This one is a little off the main road to Antequera, about 5 minutes drive from the main site. It is well marked and easy to find, don't be scared when the road turns into a dirt road - it is just for a few 100 meters...
Except for visiting the Dolmen there is nothing to see or do, "all" you can do is walk into the middle chamber and appreciate the build. It is well worth visiting, but expect to be done in 10-15minutes at this site.
As is the case with the main site, this one can also be visited for free.

4 kms by road from the well-known Dolmens of Menga and Viera, the Tholos of Romeral lies at the end of a very bumpy and dusty last kilometre. Drive slowly, please!
With its small, carefully fitted stones and a domed chamber near the end of the entrance, it looks almost modern. Well ,it's only 4000 years old! Worth adding to your visit, it is part of the UNESCO site, and entrance is free.

El Romeral Dolmen
The “Tholos of El Romeral” who an example of a typical false cupola tomb, here we have a corridor with masonry walls and a flat roof from about 26m long. At the end you are entering in a very large chamber, also constructed in masonry, and here you have a small passage who is leading into a smaller chamber. So here we are at the end of the visit of the three 5000-year-old dolmens located just outside the town. In the year 2016 the dolmens and the two mountains near to the dolmen complex, were declared “UNESCO World Heritage”. The dolmens were built by farmers who lived in the fertile Guadalhorce valley during the Neolithic period and Copper Age from 5000 to 2200BC. And are described as "The best examples of megalithic architecture”. Here we are at the end of our visit to the three Dolmens of Antequera, who are certainly worth the visit.

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!

The main attraction would be the other two dolmens just a short trip away where the excellent Visitors Centre is located and which gives a great overview of how these four thousand year old bronze age tombs were built . Overall three magnificent megalithic structures which were part of the Western European tradition of the burial of the dead nobility from 2500 BC to 1500 BC and definitely a must see when visiting the Andalucia region .

When contemplating going to the Dolmens, only view this one as part of the trio, the main 2 are just up the road, ideally do this one last to appreciate the differences, also ensure you watch the film in the visitors centre. The 3 can be easily viewed in an hour but well worth visiting. It is free as well!

We visited Antequera, to see the Dolmen's, These prehistoric monuments are quite interesting but not a lot to see. There is a visitors centre with a Video presentation showing how it is believed these were built which is a must if you are visiting otherwise you will have little to go on. The Dolmen are three underground cave structures built by lowering huge stones into a trench and then covering them with, no bones have been found and very little idea of their function. From the Dolmen you can see a mountain which has the shape of a head.

we were only in Antequera for two hours so had little time to explore, we did however go into the 'Museum of the City' quyite interesting holding mainly religiuod artifacts, we then went into the San Sebastion Collegiate church, quit a unremarkable building did not appear well cared for and a lot of the religious structure needed a good dusting.

The Town of Antequera would need a visit of several hours to do it justice

It's not a huge site but well worth a visit. The visitors centre has a helpful and informative video of the probably construction of the stone buildings which is probably worth seeing first.
The monuments are easily accessed and give a good idea of the skill that was used thousands of years ago in construction.
Spent just under an hour there and that's sufficient.

We liked this dolmen most, even though it is the least advertised. However, all off them only offer the views shiwn on the pictures.

Unfortunately we made our way to these burial chambers to find that this attraction is closed on Mondays. Not sure later in season. Poor signage to the place
