Santo Adrião Anthropomorphic Tombs

Montalegre

Information

These archaeological tombs are situated at about 2km north from the beautiful village of Montalegre, next to the Santo Adrião Chapel.
These Anthropomorphic Tombs probably date back from the 10th and 11th century, consisting on three granite tombs and one carved in a schist rock, on the backside of the Chapel.
It is thought that these tombs might belong to an ancient settlement that existed nearby.
The surrounding landscape, in almost pure state, is of great beauty and peace of mind, in a place where time seems to have stopped.

The access to the monument is not easy, made through a sandy road, after the ‘Old Bridge’ and for about 2km.
