This spot is just amazing. Although the region is well provided with megalithic monuments, I never saw anything like this: the church of São Bento do Mato was built on the spot, and incorporated half of the dolmen in one of its wall.

Unfortunately I couldn't write any sources with information regarding the building process of the church and the interaction with the megalithic monument.
