|Description ||Is this a dolmen? |
This is located in Cavez, Cabeceiras de Basto, Portugal. As far as I know it has not been surveyed. The area might be be developed within the next fews years. I am afraid that it will be destroyed if it is not recognized as historic. I do not know who to contact about this. Any help is appreciated.

| Hard to tell from this picture. Is the "capstone" supported by orthostats or by the bedrock? This might be a hint, but of course there are also sites in several countries where the bedrock is integrated into a dolmen structure. Is there a real chamber below the capstone?|
| From what I remembered the cap stone is not bedrock. It is a real chamber; small but enough for 2 people to sit inside. I posted another pic of the side view, but it's not any better. I am trying to get better pictures. |
