Follow the road for about 1km, and take the path on the right which goes up towards Monte Revinco. Stay on the main path and follow the cairns. After 1km, you'll reach a plateau with stones on the ground. Turn right to reach the first dolmen: a casa di l'orca. Listed as a historic monument, the Monte Revinco dolmen dates back to the Neolithic era.
To reach the second dolmen, simply turn around and turn right for a few hundred meters. We will then reach casa di l'orcu. They are the oldest dolmens in the Mediterranean. The burials are thought to have been built around 5500 BC.
