Dolmen du Ranc d’Aven No 1

Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


It's a short but very steep climb up a path (follow the brown painted marks on the rocks) through grassy, low scrubby bushes to the hilltop. Even though the dolmen isn't in perfect condition, and the climb is steep, it's well worth the hike simply to see this monument in its commanding position. It once had two capstones, but one has fallen inwards and the other fallen back. Its sides and back are still in position. It's been a bit carelessly restored with some ugly cement here and there, and in one side is a curious hole, probably a result of breakages over time than an original feature. Jane Posted by Jane
