Menhir of Mollet

The Mollet Menhir is a megalithic monument with a single block of stone that was discovered in April 2009, while work was being carried out on the Parc de les Pruneres. It is 4.90 m long, 68 cm wide, 110 cm deep and weighs about 6 tons).

This menhir is worked and engraved: on one side it has curvilinear and rectilinear engravings that form motifs of snakes, antlers and shields, on the opposite side there is a human face in bas-relief. Due to its characteristics and unique monumentality, it is one of the most important finds in recent years in southern Europe.
