Núcleo Megalítico de Chã de Lamas

Archaeological Sites

One of the largest megalithic sites of the region is located in Vascões, in an ample plain near the Lagoa da Salgueirinha. It’s the site of Chã de Lamas, a set of five tumuli - round constructions covering megalithic funerary monuments - dated from the Neolithic / Chalcolithic ages. Placed in an area of large and relatively plain pastures, these tumuli are easily noticed in the landscape. Therefore, it won’t be difficult to find them. But don’t be overwhelmed by these funerary monuments and enjoy the quietness of the place, where sluggish sheep and goats graze at the forefront of an endless greenish meadow... It's a good chance to wipe the dust from your camera!
