Found amidst the verdant hills of North Pembrokeshire, Pentre Ifan is a prehistoric burial chamber built around 3,500 BC, and is one of the most impressive megalithic sites in Wales.
Pentre Ifan takes us back to Neolithic (New Stone Age) times, when our ancestors buried their dead in tombs such as this. What we see before us today are the bare bones of a burial chamber that would originally have been covered with an earthen mound. The giant 16½ft/5m ‘capstone’ appears to be precariously balanced on three ‘uprights’, though it has remained in place for over 5,000 years.
