Orca's Anta

Gouveia

Information

Also known as Anta da Pedra da Orca or Anta do Rio Torto, this megalithic monument is situated in Rio Torto, nearby Gouveia.

In 1895, right after the discovery of the importance of these “rocks”, the area was investigated and studied and several pre-historical vestiges were found, such as flint and quartz arrow points, beads, several ceramic fragments and human bones.

This Anta, with considerable dimensions, is possibly dated from the end of the Neolithic Period, and is composed by a sepulchral room with a polygonal plant with about 3, 50 meters diameter with an access corridor, with a covering stone.
