We walked from Mas Nou via Romanya de la selva to this interesting grave. On the trail from Romanya to the Stone grave you already pass at some Menhirs. The way back via route C110 takes longer as just along the road. We found it not worth as no new impressions were encountered.

This ancient stone Dolmen site is extraordinary experience in many ways. I have been to Stonehenge (England), and Maes Howe /Ring of Brodgar (Orkney Islands). Cova d'en Daina - almost organic out-of-the-way site is worth visiting and experiencing for many reasons. This extraordinary Dolmen is most certainly "not worth a detour" in life! The Cova d'en Daina amazing above and... More

If visiting the area, I would certainly take the time to go to Cova de'n Daina, as a moment to get away from the crowds on the beach. The drive up there is curvy, and has beautiful views. The stone dolmen itself is simple (this is not Stonehenge!), but well preserved considering that it is completely unprotected. The visit will... More

It takes some time (15 minutes) if you leave the highway at Sta. Cristina d'Aro, but if you love these prehistoric sites, you will not be disappointed. It is a very complete dolmen, with an explantation panel, nicely set in a little forest with cork oaks (also something worth seeing). If you say: why another heap of stones, even if... More

If you happen to be passing you could do worse than stop for 15 minutes to view this old stone burial chamber. There's a small car park and then it's a short walk to see the stones. You can climb inside the chamber but there's not a lot to see.

Ok, so it's rarity factor might make it worthwhile. Best to do as a round trip coming up from Cabanyes/Calonge, enjoying the twisting road up throughout the Gavarres where many cycle racers choose to train - stopping off at this attraction and then taking a left at Romanya de la Selva, checking out the seriously old village with Can Roquet...

A dolmen over 3,000 years old. They haven't covered it up, so you can still see all the structure of this (probable) grave site.
