Mildly interesting, some huge stones in a sterile setting. We went as part of a small tour of the town and 10 minutes was enough to take it all in

Sorry - just a load of very large stones to me. However, they have the most STUNNING and completely unrecognised sculpture.

We were brought to a couple of neolithic 'dolmens' just outside Antequera, the Dolmen de Menga and Dolmen de Viera. The Menga dolmen is actually a tumulus that is aligned with a point on a nearby mountain, the Peña de los Enamorados, so that the sun shines straight into it on the summer solstice, the 21 June. A video in... More

We chose Antequera because of the New York Times "50 places to visit in 2017". The dolmenes were especially interesting and it does seem to be Spain's Stonehenge!

One of the key sites to visit in Antequera. Visited both sites but would have preferred a better description (in English) prior to visiting the site. Reception of great assistance & provided with a flyer in English which gave a fair description of the site. There was a display area showing a film but as would be expected inSpanish so... More

Before you climb the hill to see the dolmens, make sure to take the time to view the interesting and informative video which outlines how the dolmens were constructed. These neolithic monuments are impressive!

Easily reached by little tourist train from literally outside tourist office. Early morning it was relatively quiet and an hour or so gives enough time to see this World Heritage Site and visit the Reception centre then return back to town. Would have loved to spend more time here but it was really very windy so probably much more inspiring... More

As so many reviewers have said, these Dolmens are amazing. Although Romeral Dolmen is reached down a dusty route and has limited facilities, Menja and Viega are not only more impressive but have been provided with off road parking and an excellent Visitor Centre. This has a shop, well presented explanatory film in several languages, and toilets. The staff were... More

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!
