NASA has released a series of images taken from their satellite in which is reflected the re-emergence of the dolmen of Guadalperal due to the drought.

After more than fifty years, the megalithic monument of 7,000-year-old returned due to the low water from marsh of Valdecañas , after the waves of heat, the scarcity of summer rains and a series of desembalses to Portugal.

The space agency american uses the two snapshots to illustrate the scope of the change and the coast expansion around the reservoir. One taken the 25th July 2013 , which shows the complete immersion of the dolmen in the swamp of Valdecañas where he has been since the creation of the latter in 1963.

the other corresponds to The July 25, 2019 . A circle marks the area where the remains of the megalithic monument, and he appreciates how they have lowered the water levels. "The sediments color clear are with the lake bottom recently exposed," says in the publication.

The neighbors, to the possibility that the memorial continue to deteriorate under the water now begins to cover it again, they asked that to be moved . However, the Board of Extremadura and the Ministries of Culture and Sport and Transition Ecological made public its decision not to carry out the change because "all the experts have considered that the transfer of the megalithic group at this time would be an irreversible loss of the historical context-archaeological ".
