Spanyol - The Dolmen of Guadalperal, sebuah monumen megalitik muncul karena kekeringan di waduk Valdecanas di El Gordo, Spanyol. Begini rupanya.

In the wake of three heatwaves and little rain in sight, Spain's reservoirs are getting emptier by the week, and not just in traditionally more arid southern part of the country. Spain's drought began early in the year after the country suffered its second driest winter in more than 60 years, according to the government. (AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)

Amalie Garcia (54) berdiri di samping The Dolmen of Guadalperal, di dasar waduk Valdecanas di El Gordo, Spanyol barat, Sabtu, (13/8/2022). Monumen tersebut merupakan situs kuno pada era megalitikum. The Dolmen of Guadalperal terlihat karena air waduk surut lantaran kekeringan dan gelombang panas.

Waduk ini mengering dan memperlihatkan apa yang ada di dasar waduk. Kekeringan Spanyol dimulai pada awal tahun setelah negara itu mengalami musim dingin terkering kedua dalam lebih dari 60 tahun. Batu-batu raksasa berusia 7.000 tahun itu muncul dari dasar waduk.

Batu ini terlihat masih kekar meski terendam air danau dalam tempo yang lama. Diperkirakan batu-batu itu merupakan bangunan penting pada masanya. Arkeolog mempercayai monumen megalitikum itu dibangun oleh dinasti Roma.

Tampak sebuah batu yang sangat besar (menhir) menjadi pintu masuknya. Ambang batas berbatu ini diukir dengan sosok manusia di satu sisi, dan simbol berlekuk-lekuk di sisi lain yang bisa mewakili ular atau Sungai Tagus. Para arkeolog berspekulasi bahwa struktur itu dibangun pada milenium ke-4 atau ke-5 SM, atau ribuan tahun lebih tua dari Stonehenge di Inggris.
