Know Before You Go
Valencia de Alcántara is a little town in western Spain, 6.8 miles to the Portuguese border and 58 miles from Cáceres by the road N-521. All the routes are sing posted, but it is sometimes still difficult to find some dolmens. There are several routes to visit the dolmens, but three of them are the main tours. The Zafras route is situated immediately before you arrive in the town by the road N-521, to the left. You'll find the Tapada del Anta route when heading from Valencia from Alcantara—where the city ends, a narrower road goes to the right and then takes the road CCV-107, where you have to drive for about two miles an unpaved road. The Los Mellizos route is also in the direction of Portugal by the N-521, though you take the road CC-112 to Alcorneo.
