The dolmen is pretty surreal... it's an enormous ancient burial stone surrounded my modern-day pea fields and just off the main road. It's cool to go to if you're already in that area, but I wouldn't have gone specifically for it. Unless you're very passionate about that sort of thing, of course!

We saw the dolmen when the surrounding fields were filled with rapeseed oil plants, in their almost fluorescent yellow. It made a wonderful backdrop to this ancient burial site. Well worth visiting but I would suggest they need to make bigger signposts for it as I drove past it several times before seeing the small brown sign on the road.
