This megalith, popularly known as "La Hucha" (piggybank), lies half buried and surrounded by a circle of stones. It is a single chamber dolmen, oriented approximately north-south and made of a slate-like material. It consists of two large slabs of around 2.40 and 2.30 metres in length, respectively.

On one of the shorter sides, a third base stone, much smaller than the other two slabs, can be seen half buried. The monolithic cover measures 1.90 x 1.50 x 0.23 metres. Numerous bowl-shaped hollows related to burial rituals have been carved out of the upper panel.
