Balma del Moro is at around 600 metres in the Alberes Mountains on the Col- del Pomers to the south of Laroque des Albere .This is in the Languedoc-Rousillon area. It can be reached by pathways , which are clearly marked , being in France, from either Laroque des Albere or Sorede. Markings on a board nearby put it at between 4000 and 2000 B.C.
The climb up is quite strenuous but the views and the dolmen are worth it. Both of the villages have some fine bars which we found very relaxing after the walk.
