Ruta por Antequera

Archaeological Complex

The complex formed by the Menga, Viera and El Romeral Dolmens located in the Málaga town of Antequera and awarded as UNESCO World Heritage in 2016 is an archaeological space of extraordinary beauty and singularity, besides one of the best examples of the European Megalithism. As it is usual in the megalithic monuments, these constructions are characterized using large blocks of stone to form chambers and covered spaces, with ritual and funeral purposes.

The Menga and Viera Dolmens are in the same area which is easily accessible by foot from the centre of the Antequera town. The El Romeral megalithic sepulchre, even if also is part of the complex, is placed 4 km way so it is better to go by car.
