The Pseudo Dolmen of Avola, so called because of doubts about its real nature. The monument is near the town of Avola, in south-eastern Sicily. The building, surrounded by dense and wild vegetation, essentially rests on two "pillars". It measures eight meters long and five and a half wide. On the surface of the slab, there are ten small rectangular incisions, perhaps tombs for children used in Greek or Paleochristian times. There are no dating items.
