The Dolmen d’Amenon (also known as Allée couverte d’Amenon) is situated at the entrance of a farm, north of the D141 road and south of the Loir River, northwest of Saint-Germain-d’Arcé, near La Flèche in the Sarthe department of France. In France, the term “Dolmen” is a generic term for various types of Neolithic megalithic structures (see: French Nomenclature).
It represents the remains of an Allée couverte, a gallery grave of the Angevin type. Like many dolmens, the Dolmen d’Amenon suffered destruction in the past due to road construction. The remnants consist of a single capstone supported by two roughly 1.5 meters apart upright stones, surrounded by numerous randomly scattered stones. Excavated in the 1970s, it has been protected as a historical monument since 1976.
