O Camiño dos Faros reaches one of the most important monuments of the megalithic art in Galicia. The Dolmen in Dombate. This Dolmen has been the object of different excavations and studies. It has been recently created a plan to complete its restoration by protecting it with a dome of wood and a center for its study has been built.
When we start the visit of the center of research, we are aware of its great splendor, enjoying its paintings and learn a bit more about its origin.
Regarding the remains that have been found, there are some flint blades, arrows and polished axes, necklaces and ceramic pieces that belonged to the trousseau of the chief of the tribes to make the “travel” after dying easier. The divinity was represented by different human-shaped images placed along the corridor.
We, the “Trasnos” are not archaeologists, but after visiting the dolmen and seeing it in its original state, we left the place with a weird feeling as we think that something bad has been made to keep such a monument under such a big piece of wood that makes it seem to be much smaller. Suddenly, we wonder if it will stay there and it that condition 5000 years more.
