      Pinheiro dos Abracos: (Passage Mound).

Discovered in 1966, there is just enough of this Neolithic structure left to identify that it was originally a small, covered passage-mound.

Only 5 of the 8 uprights reported in the 1980's remain.

Arrow heads, polished stones-axes, and fragments of pottery were discovered in the excavation.
