Leave here your coments. We will bring them to the posts...and send them to the institutions with responsabilities on the preservation and use of the monument.
Anta do Zambujeiro is the tallest dolmen in the world.
This is a special and outstanding monument, whatever the scale of analysis.
Discovered and excavated on the early sixties, it has been left without proper restoration until the present.
The structural problems have, since then, become more and more serious, and the ugly metal roof, as well as the inconvenient wooden blockage, have been intended to stabilize and protect the dolmen.
The fundamental question is now concerned with the dignity of the monument.
National and regional authorities claim to have no funds to attack the problem.
Anta Grande do Zambujeiro is now a question of respect for our cultural heritage,
The visitors (everyday a large number of people comes to testify it) are surprised by such an abandonment and lack of responsibility.
We feel ashamed.
