Calm visit just out of the fuzz of beaches and night clubs
Sep 2019
While living a short time in Platja d’Aro I used to visit, often, this usually calm place ... It gave me some new perspective on time ...

Nice walk to the Menhir and stone grave
Jun 2016 • Couples
We walked from Mas Nou via Romanya de la selva to this interesting grave. On the trail from Romanya to the Stone grave you already pass at some Menhirs. The way back via route C110 takes longer as just along the road. We found it not worth as no new impressions were encountered.

Ancient Wisdom Across Space Time

This ancient stone Dolmen site is extraordinary experience in many ways. I have been to Stonehenge (England), and Maes Howe /Ring of Brodgar (Orkney Islands). Cova d'en Daina - almost organic out-of-the-way site is worth visiting and experiencing for many reasons.

This extraordinary Dolmen is most certainly "not worth a detour" in life! The Cova d'en Daina amazing above and underground stone complex go straight to where they have to go, and there are no detours involved!

In the Tao it is called "The Pathless Path".

We visited Cova d'en Daina Dolmen site on 25 December 2015, and for those who know... The whole site was buzzing with higher levels of energy. This may have been due to Planetary and Sun alignments at that time. Buzzing ears aside it felt like walking on magnetic fields.

We arrived there and no one else was there. I have to add the site can be busy with people at key Solstice times or during the Summer. It is worth taking time to look further around as the original site is much bigger than the small group of stones at the centre of the complex.

You drive up a mountainous winding road similar to Swiss mountains, only there are less drop road barriers on some curves. The drive there is not for the inexperienced or the faint hearted. Who said Enlightenment is an easy path?

The feeling there was warm, gentle, healing and peaceful. For me (personally) this was a life changing event. I do not like rituals, as I feel humans pollute natural areas with their beliefs and their individual and collective psychic needs.

There is a timeless and powerful presence in this area beyond ideas, beyond human existence and beyond belief. I think one cannot go there and not be touched deep within the heart by this location (experience).

What I learned from this experience is that we humans are physical Dolmen energies walking on the surface of the Earth. I love the mountains of the Scottish Highlands and Glencoe, and in these stones I feel the same energy and the same power.

It is a micro-cosmos of natural stone and Earth power.

For us locals a common place to visit
Dec 2015 • Family
If visiting the area, I would certainly take the time to go to Cova de'n Daina, as a moment to get away from the crowds on the beach. The drive up there is curvy, and has beautiful views. The stone dolmen itself is simple (this is not Stonehenge!), but well preserved considering that it is completely unprotected.

The visit will not take more than 15 minutes, but afterwards I recommend lunch at the nearby restaurants on the top of the hill of Romanya.

beautiful dolmen in nice setting
Aug 2015 • Family
It takes some time (15 minutes) if you leave the highway at Sta. Cristina d'Aro, but if you love these prehistoric sites, you will not be disappointed.
It is a very complete dolmen, with an explantation panel, nicely set in a little forest with cork oaks (also something worth seeing).
If you say: why another heap of stones, even if it is more than 3.000 years old - then forget it!

Not worth a detour
Aug 2012 • Couples
If you happen to be passing you could do worse than stop for 15 minutes to view this old stone burial chamber. There's a small car park and then it's a short walk to see the stones. You can climb inside the chamber but there's not a lot to see.

Don't make a special trip - do the round one!!
May 2013
Ok, so it's rarity factor might make it worthwhile. Best to do as a round trip coming up from Cabanyes/Calonge, enjoying the twisting road up throughout the Gavarres where many cycle racers choose to train - stopping off at this attraction and then taking a left at Romanya de la Selva, checking out the seriously old village with Can Roquet restaurant and then working your way along the 'spine' of the mountain ridge of Mas Nou, watching out for potholes, past the beautiful golf course and Hapimag resort, back down to the C-31 and Platja D'Aro.
A road trip of perhaps an hour with stop offs.
A WARNING, not mentioned elsewhere - this Dolmen is also a pilgrimage place for mosquitos - hungry ones - so definitely take repellent!! You've been warned!!

Ever seen anything like it?
Dec 2012 • Solo
A dolmen over 3,000 years old. They haven't covered it up, so you can still see all the structure of this (probable) grave site.
