The Preseli Hills (Mynyddoedd Preseli), a wide stretch of high moorland with many prehistoric monuments are though to be the source of the bluestones used in the construction of Stonehenge. The dramatic Pentre Ifan neolithic burial chamber [dolmen] makes a very interesting day out on Cardigan Bay.

Prentre Ifan dolmen burial chamber. The surviving stones formed the doorway and main chamber of the tomb, which would originally have been covered by a large mound of stones about 30m x 17m. The stone chamber was at the southern end of the long mound, which stretched off to the north. To visit Pentre Ifan, drive towards Nevern or Newport on the main coast road and turn at the junction facing the 'Pink Cafe' above Nevern
