The dolmen located in front of the town hall and the length of the cover is 3 meter in height. Twenty seven holes of different shapes exist and their diameters range from 3 to 6 cm with 1 to 7 cm in depth. Exact reason why holes were made is unknown but it seems that it links to the folk belief such as wishes for a good harvest and giving birth.
