Britelo Megalithic Necropolis

Archaeological Sites

The Britelo Megalithic Necropolis is one of the most important megalithic areas in Peneda-Gerês National Park. The hiking trails on the Megalithic Trail, starting in Britelo village, will take you on a voyage of discovery of these monuments of recent prehistory. Nine points are marked, the highlight being the Lapa da Moura dolmen in Chã de Cabanos. The dolmen is quite large and the funeral chamber has a polygonal design. It is covered by a large slab, a striking symbol of the human presence in this territory. In Chã da Rapada, there is impressive rock art on a granite outcrop. On the way, appreciate other examples while admiring the nature and feeling close to heaven!
