Lapa da Cova

"The Lapa Cova is a cavity formed by a main gallery, about 30 m deep, with a sharp irregular ascending floor (over 10 m gap between the opening and the upper deck). Actually, the gallery floor is formed almost exclusively by a chaos of blocks of "megalithic" dimensions. The entry, like a gothic arch, is about 15 m wide, by as much high. On the eastern corner of the Upper Deck there is a narrow passage, descending to the Inner Room; this one, measuring about 6 m in maximum diameter, is where we found concentrated most of the archaeological material (especially ceramics) identified".
