A collection of photographs of megalithic sites that I have visited over the last twenty five years, many of which are to be found in West Cork, but also some from travels in England, France and Spain.
A beautiful drive south into the mountains of Ourense and the border country near Portugal brings us to a couple of dolmens located near the dam on the western side of the Encoro de Salas.
The first one is located at the south end of the dam is known as Casola do Foxo.
The second one at the northern end of the dam is known as Casiña da Moura,
A slight deviation from the usual stone circles and dolmens featuring on A Megalith Tour, Castro de Baroña is an old settlement and fort on the Atlantic coast of the province of A Coruña which was inhabited over a couple of centuries before being abandoned almost two thousand years ago.
A trip to Spain this summer had to involve a few megaliths along the way! Northwest of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia is the Ruta de los Dolmenes which takes you on a tour of the local megaliths, a few of which I visited.
A five minute drive from Baíñas brings you to the village of Serramo and another five minutes takes you into a forest of eucalypts. A signposted trail through the trees leads to the first dolmen of the day, known as Arca da Piosa and dating to 3000-4000 BC.
