    Zohara's false Dolmen, Sabugueiro, Portugal

    by Martin_S. Written Jul 28, 2011

    If you are traveling with a spouse who does not exactly share your interests in ancient history and archeology, you may come across false dolmen, or more precisely be the CAUSE of their building.
    Here near Sabugueiro, after Zohara very patiently waited in the car for me to visit several of the dolmen (Antas de Orca and Antas 2e3) located nearby, decided we should stop for a picnic lunch.
    While stopped Zohara decided to "teach" me how dolmen were built and WHY....they were built BECAUSE a spouse had time on their hands.
    In the photo you can see the dolmen that Zohara built, so if you spot this with an new sign pointing it out you will know that it is NOT a genuine ancient site.

    Favorite thing: Now this had an interesting name, Antas 2e3, guess they ran out of regular names.
    Even after we found the sign that marks the entrance to the area where this dolmen is located we had difficulty locating it exactly...no paths, no signs, just hilly, rocky, grassy area covered in cow and bull SHI*...yes it was in the middle of a cow pasture and I kept looking over my shoulder to see if the bull had spotted us yet.
    But still visiting these ancient burial sites for me is enjoyable, Zohara sometimes decides to sit in the car and wait for me, wonder why??

    Favorite thing: Not to far outside the town of Sabugueiro is the Antas de Orca (dolmen), ancient burial chamber. I have attached a web site that shows the various burial sites, such as the dolmen, and also the Menires (or standing stones) sites.

    Favorite thing: While the town of Sabugueiro may not have much to offer a tourist, you DO have the Sabugueiro sheepdog, AND.
    And you also have several dolmen in the area, Antas de Orca and Antas 2e3, which I will show seperately.
