The Dolmen du Molí del Vent (also Moulin à vent - meaning "the windmill") is located on a hill north of Bélestra in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in France.
The north-west-south-east oriented dolmen à couloir is a portal dolmen. Its cairn, about 0.5 m high, is relatively large with a diameter of about 9.0 m. Its uncovered approximately 5.0 m long corridor made of dry masonry and individual slabs is wide and long. It becomes a little narrower in the direction of the approximately 2.0 × 1.0 m measuring chamber. The dolmen is open in the southeast and consists of four bearing stones and a capstone of 2.9 × 1.75 m. Due to its structure, it must date from the second period of the Neolithic, between the late 4th and the beginning of the 3rd millennium BCE.
