The Dolmen of Guadalperal during the drought of summer 2019
  • 2 Dolmen de Guadalperal. 24/7. Archaeological rock formation similar to Stonehenge but on a smaller scale. It's almost permanently submerged in a reservoir, with the tips peaking out. In periods of drought, the water reclines and the dolmen can be observed in its full glory. The dolmen was completely visible in 2019 for the first time in 50 years because of extreme drought in the region. Free.
