Geocache Description:


Dólmen das Carniçosas

O Dólmen das Carniçosas está localizado na freguesia das Alhadas e é composto por uma galeria que mede cerca de 4,50 metros de comprimento, formada por dois renques de lajes de mediana altura erguidas paralelamente e de uma sala ou Câmara poligonal, de cerca de 3 metros de diâmetro, limitada a Norte por cinco lajes que se apoiam umas contra as outras, cujas dimensões são em média de 2,10 metros de altura, 1,30 metros de largura e 0,30 metros de espessura.

O dólmen é o mais bem conservado monumento do período Neolítico, de um conjunto de cerca de 20, que se distribuem pela Serra da Boa Viagem e Serra da Brenha.

Em 1898 foi adquirido pela Sociedade Arqueológica da Figueira que o protegeu com um muro, infelizmente construído no cimo da mamoa, um monte artificial de pedras e terras que é parte integrante do monumento.

 

Carniçosas Dolmen

Carniçosas Dolmen is located at Alhadas (a small village belonging to Figueira da Foz township) and consists on a gallery 4.50 meters long, formed by two rows of flagstone and by a polygonal chamber with a diameter of almost 3 meters, limited on North by five flagstones that support each other, with a medium height of 2.10 meters, 1.30 meters large and 0.30 meters grossness.

It is the best preserved collective grave in a vast cemetery which was built along the mountain ridge during the Neolithic period.

In 1898, the dolmen was acquired by the Archaeological Society of Figueira who protected it with a wall, unfortunately, built on top of the mamoa, an artificial mound of earth and stones which is an integral part of the monument.
