About 350 years ago this Neolithic dolmen was converted into a small Catholic Chapel known as Chapel of São Brissos Cromlech. Dolmens, sacred monuments made of standing stones capped with a top stone, appear throughout Western Europe, but rarely, if ever, have they been converted to new use in such a way.
