    Description

    Losa La Campa Dolmen, Tella Dolmen or Vasar Stone.

    Approximately 700 m before you arrive in Tella on the main road, take a path that heads off to the left. This path is signposted and also has information material.


    In the north-western part of the plain stands a simple rectangular dolmen chamber open to the south-east. The intriguing asymmetry of its limestone stones creates and interesting dynamic effect.
    The dolmen consists of one slab for the roof and six lateral uprights arranged one on each of the east and west sides and two on the north and south sides. At the opening, there is another small slab by way of an entrance.
    The chamber has an internal surface area of 1.60 x 1.40 x 1.20 m.
    Dimensions of the slabs:
    - Roof slab: 2.50 x 1.80 x 0.50 m
    - Lateral uprights:
    - 0.80 x 0.50 x 0.20 m
    - 1.20 x 0.80 x 0.18 m
    - 1 x 1.80 x 0.28 m
    - 0.80 x 1.10 x 0.30 m
    - 1.10 x 1.10 x 0.20 m
    - 1.82 x 1x 0.20 m
    All that can be seen of the tumulus are a number of blocks of stone next to the chamber that are partly buried in the ground.
