One of the most romantic and beautiful places in Wales is Pentre Ifan. This is one of the best preserved Neolithic dolmens in Wales.

This stone structure was built circa 3 500 BC, the purpose of it is not entirely clear to us. Nowadays visitors enjoy the beautiful landscape, sitting under the 16 tons heavy capstone, perched on sharp tips of three upright stones.
