Presentation

The dolmen of La Joselière is a burial monument which was built around 2500 B.C. during the Middle Neolithic period. It is located in the South-East of Pornic toward La Bernerie and accessible through the coastal path.
This monument is formed out of a 12 m long quadrangular mound, which is partly preserved. Made out of a bulk of flat-packed stones, it is framed by two straight dry-stone walls. It contains a Megalithic tomb transepted (crossing of the lateral chambers and corridor) and consists in four distinctive lateral quadrangular chambers with a middle corridor. The entrance is towards the East.
