Dolmen de Dombate

Costa da Morte

About 11km inland from Laxe, this impressively large 3700 BCE megalithic tomb was encased in a protective pavilion in 2011. Visitors can walk round inside the pavilion but may not enter the tomb itself. A full-size replica, which you can go inside, stands in the adjacent visitors centre.
