Garn Turne Rocks is the site of a hugely important megalithic complex, within easy reach of the hotel – one of the most important archaeological sites anywhere in Wales, and older than the pyramids of ancient Egypt.
At its centre lies a huge megalithic tomb, which dates back to Neolithic times, some 5,000 years ago – the highlights include:
- The huge capstone on the megalithic tomb, which is the largest anywhere in Wales – even larger than the enormous capstone at Pentre Ifan
- “Cupmark” rock carvings on the natural rock outcrops, or crags, around 150m beyond the monument, with 2 cup and ring markings on the main capstone, too – see: http://www.rock-art-in-wales.co.uk/database/welsh-rock-art-garn-turne.html
- Two standing stones in the vicinity of the site
- Stunning views across the local landscape.
