The route of the dolmens PR Gi-94: Elosua-Placencia megalithic site

This route takes us along the way that used to connect the valleys of the Deba and Urola rivers. Between the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, human communities chose mountain ranges such as this one, prominent features in the landscape, as burial sites and boundary markers. The dolmens and tumuli that make up the Elosua-Placencia megalithic site, spread out along the mountain range defined by the summits of Karakate, Irukurutzeta and Agerreburu, whose appeal is heightened by the extraordinary views we can enjoy on our way.

The route of the dolmens heads in a straight line through the Karakate-Agerreburu divide. The mountain range is accessible from any one of the following towns: Bergara, Soraluze and Elgoibar. Leaving from Bergara, we take the path leading from the neighbourhood of Arane toward Elosua.

We can head as far as Soraluze or Elgoibar, or we can take a circular route along the Aizpuru road (PR Gi-94.2), and return to Bergara.
