The Dolmen of Alberite is an impressive funerary monument of more than 6,000 years old.

It is located in the plains of Villamartin and shares space with four graveyards. It is a great large sized gallery where the painting and engraved decoration is preserved, representing suns, snakes, weapons and human forms.

This large tomb, used to house only two bodies, involving a collective effort, making us think that the community that built it was a tribal organization with evidence of social inequality.
