Old history reigns in Languedoc: Dolmen near Mailhac, Minervois

With ancient paths, mysterious outcrops of rock and land, there is much to see and much to imagine. Here at Mailhac, a place of significance with the nearby Oppidum of Cayla, a necropolis, a graveyard consisting of 1400 tombs or more, dating back to 4500 BC, one can after a short walk, next to small capitelle, and an oak grove, find this good sized dolmen, Boun Marcou, with a nice view of the Minervois hills, and Aude valley.
