Buzy Dolmen - viewed from the inside to the northwest

The Dolmen of Buzy (also called Calhau-de-Teberno or Calhau-de-Teberne ) is located in a park between the D920 (road) and the railway line on the outskirts of Buzy , a few kilometers north of Arudy, near Oloron-Sainte-Marie in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in France . In France, dolmen is the generic term for megalithic structures of all kinds (see: French nomenclature ).

Buzy Dolmen - seen from the northwest

The dolmen has a rounded, humped capstone about 4.0 meters long, which lies above a chamber 1.5 meters wide, with 7 preserved lateral supporting stones. There is only one end stone in the northwest. Another stone (on the far right in the picture) stands about outside of the lateral line, the one facing southeast, onto the chamber facing the Vallée d'Ossau (valley). The 16 Cromlechs by Lou Couraus are also located here .

The dolmen was moved here from its original position when the railway was built.
