Osuna Colegiata

Seville, beautiful and diverse

A megalithic settlement and a necropolis formed by fourteen tombs were located to the east of the village. The tombs are lined along the River Guadiamar and nearby streams over nine kilometres.

This necropolis is one of the few examples of artificial copper age cave tombs, since in that period the use of dolmens was the norm. Other similar tombs have been discovered in the immediate surroundings of Lora de Estepa, Pedrera and Alameda. There are also some near Lisbon, but they are very rare. Tombs of this kind are usually excavated in clayey, limestone marls.
