Standing Stone of Cristal

This menhir is located in the municipality of Ribeira (A Coruña province). It stands in a private property near the dolmen of Axeitos and constitutes one of the last contributions to the Galician megalithism because it was discovered in the second half of the 1990s, buried two meters deep. This megalith, 2.50 ms high, displays in its surface some cup-marks and it has suffered a fate unfortunately little frequent, as it has been raised in almost its original location. It was studied by Victoria Villoch.

Pedra Chantada

This menhir is located in Vilalba (Lugo). Dating it is very difficult and it measures 2.15 ms of height and it has an average perimeter of two meters. Its surface is covered with a lot of cup-marks.

Pedra Alta

This menhir is located in the center of what once was the Antela's pool. It was used as a mark to divide the municipalities of Sarreaus, Xunqueira de Ambía and Vilar de Barrio, and it seems that it was about 3 m high. In the year l975 it was knocked down by a tractor and erected again in l986; at present it is situated on a pedestal that does not enhance it and it is out of its archaeological context. It is necessary to remark that it does not belong chronologically to the period in which the Galician megalithism flourished but we have considered convenient to include it in this report.

Lapa de Gargantáns

This is the best known menhir in Galicia. It is 1.90 m high, it is conic in shape and its base is square. On its surface are easy to see about twenty cup-marks. It was erected probably in the final phase of the Galician megalithism. It was fallen on the ground for some years and it was reerected by the Pontevedra's Archaeological Museum. It is located in the municipality of Moraña (Pontevedra).
