The megalithic monument named "Dolmen de Axeitos" would fall into the category of deposits called polygon chambers with intratumular corridor.

Although Axeitos was not, at the moment, object of archaeological excavations, the results obtained in other deposits of very similar characteristics, like Dombate (Cabana de Bergantiños) or Forno dos Mouros (Toques), allow to reconstruct its archaeological record, although in a provisional manner.

The megalithic monument of Axeitos is constituted by a tomb of about 30 m in diameter (nowadays very disfigured), probably covered by a stony shell, which houses in its interior a complex architectural structure conformed by a polygonal chamber and, according to all indications, an intratumulary corridor oriented to the Southeast and distinctive in plant and height.

This megalithic jewel becomes, therefore, a mandatory stop in the visit of the Comarca do Barbanza.
