Dolmen del Romeral


This megalithic burial site was constructed around 1800 BC and features much use of small stones for its walls. To get here, continue 2.5km past the town's other two, more ancient dolmens through an industrial estate, then turn left following ‘Córdoba, Seville’ signs. After 500m, turn left at a roundabout and follow ‘Dolmen del Romeral’ signs for 200m.
