The menhir of Barrocal stands now in the centre of a slightly balanced area, free from stones, but bordered by natural outcrops.
Nature gave a precious help on the distinctiveness of the site...
In the province of Zamora, Spain, there is a curious natural monument with several similarities with the "Sanctuary" or the "Mother" - the anthropomorphic granit outcrop where the menhir of Barrocal seems to have been taken from. Inside the Mother there is also a narrow cave, and a passage, where we found some prehistoric artifacts.
Have a look on

Barrocal has been, last Summer, on the other side of the Atlantic; José António made a contact, of first degree, with precolombian megaliths (El infernito, on a previous post) and gave us a collection of astonishing images of magic landscapes.

Neolithic settlement of Murteiras (Torre de Coelheiros, Évora, Portugal).
An exceptionally well preserved "megalithic" landscape, with evidences of occupation from the Early Neolithic to the Chalcolithic times.
Natural monuments as ancestors of the megaliths.

During the Uispp world Congress, in Lisbon, a trip has been organized to the megaliths of Alentejo. From D. Mathias Wilbertz we received some images recording the visit to Vale Maria do Meio megalithic enclosure, close to Évora.
