Catalan term or phrase: Panteó arc-cova
Panteó arc-cova

This is a type of burial site. I am translating "panteó" as "mausoleum" but not sure about the "arc-cova" part. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much Ross! In the end I used "arched burial vault" because I saw that vault can also be the rectangular "boxes" that coffins are placed in for protection. I had no other context unfortunately, since it was from a list, but now I know what they are talking about. Gracias!

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Berni Armstrong: Seems a great option to me. But more context would have helped. What period are we talking about here? Did the culture described build using bricks and mortar, stone, etc? Important points for a 100% correct decision.
