Ses Roques Llises

Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


Approximate long/lat coordinates only, as we were taken (in the end) to the site & Na Comerma by someone who knew where they were!

Access: A walk of a few hundred metres after parking in a 'back entrance' to Torre d'en Gaumes a few hundred metres south of the main entrance.

For road directions to here, see Torre d'en Gaumes.

From there, we walked a few metres south down the lane (away from Torre d'en Gaumes). We went through the first gate on the left (east side of the lane). I'm afraid this is where it gets difficult!

From the gate we headed a few hundred yards diagonally right - roughly SSE, and amongst the dry stone walls & scrubby bushes, we found the tomb.

A little beauty (actually, not that little!) this is one of the very few more 'standard' megalithic tombs on Menorca (only 4, I think I read somewhere!)

It's the only one we saw, but one of the others is pretty near Torre Llisa Vell. Unfortunately, we couldn't find it.

According to Michael Hoskin, they have now found another two megalithic tombs in Menorca. There is also one in Mallorca and one in Ibiza. Posted by Whoop_John
