Mendiluze Cromlech

Mendiluze Cromlech was discovered in 1983 in Legaire fields, in Entzia mountain range, and was excavated the following year by the archaeologist J.I. Vegas Aranburu.

It consists of a stone circle built with small stones where four big menhirs stand out. A reduced inner structure was found, forming a construction similar to a rectangular cist, containing bone and coal remains.

The monument is almost 2,700 years old and served as burial site for the inhabitants of the area.
