Paradolmen del Camp d’en Güitó

The Paradolmen del Camp d’en Güitó (also called Paradolmen de l’Oliveret) is located northwest of Romanyà de la Selva, a village in Santa Cristina d’Aro in the south of the Comarca Baix Empordà in the province of Girona in Catalonia in Spain.

The three-stone chamber is about 2.0 m long, 0.7 m wide and 1.0 m high. Other stones, which suggest a classification as paradolmens, are in the immediate vicinity. Since a large part of the construction is of natural origin, one speaks of a paradolmen. The stone box “Cista de l’Oliveret” is about 8.0 m south.

No significant discoveries were made during the excavation of J. M. Almeda. During the excavation of L. Luis Esteva, a piece of earthy-coloured pottery was found. It is unclear whether the north-south-oriented structure discovered by A. Lozano and A. Solà and excavated by J. M. Almeda and L. Luis Esteva is a dolmen, a paradolmen or a stone box.

The granite complex is dated to the Chalcolithic period (2200–1800 BCE).

The Dolmen Cova d’en Daina and the Cista de la Carretera de Calonge are nearby.
