Dolmen de Viera, Planos

 
It was built 4.500 years ago, though it is not easy to set its date, since it was -as many more- spoilt before its scientific discovering. There are no clear features to establish a more concrete date.
 
It has been preserved in satisfactory conditions. It keeps four of its covering stones.
 
Its corridor is composed by lateral stones -eight orthostates at its right hand and seven at its left one- ending by a stone worked with a vain that was used as a door. It is 1,20 m. wide; 1,85 m. high and 20 m. long. Width of stones variates from 20 to 50 cms.
 
Burial chamber is cubic, with a square plan, composed by big flat stones fit into each other. It is 1,80 m. long x 2,10 m. high.
