The Dolmen del Cap de l’Home is located in the Parc Megalític de Roses near the street “Carrer de Pitàgoras” in the east of Roses near Figueres, in the Comarca Alt Empordà in Catalonia in Spain.

The Dolmen del Cap de l’Home was created in about 2700 BCE. It is a passage dolmen, and has got five bearing stones, two on each long side and one on the narrow side. A bearing stone has been restored. The capstone lies at an angle.

The approximately 1.5 m high dolmen was first excavated in 1919 and remains of pottery and bones were found. During the 1946 excavation, shards, pieces of soapstone necklaces and a piece of handcrafted ceramics were discovered. The dolmen was restored in 1983.

From here a hiking trail leads to the better-preserved dolmen Llit de la Generala, only about 100 meters away.
