When planning your visit to Évora, this is a must see if you have your own transportation. Long before the Roman ruins, these boulders were arranged in a sophisticated and scientific fashion. In fact, it is so complicated, subsequent studies are not able to fully...More

There are many monolith/megalith sites dotting the countryside around the city of Evora. The Almendres Cromlech is one of the more interesting sites due to the sheer number of boulders that were arranged in a circle (almost 100). Several still have evidence of original carvings...More

This is an amazing place to visit, well preserved peaceful (in the morning) and a great place to play hide and seek with the kids, The road up there is a dirt road - dusty if dry but passable if driving slowly

I am sorry to say that we got within .5KM of the site and had to turn around. It took us about 45 minutes to travel from the main road because the ruts were so deep. When we were close to the location there was...More

95 stones placed on top of a hill, surrounded by a beautiful cork oak forest, attract one's mind to a time travel. What were those people thinking who selected the place, planned the positioning of the megaliths and the engraved symbols on them? Which kind...More

We arrived here early in the morning and had the place to ourselves. Quite a long drive down a rough gravel road, but worth it. There are lots of megalithic sites around Evora. We only saw this one so cannot compare.

We so enjoyed touring the cromlech and other neolithic sites in the Evora area. Haunting, and so interesting, beautiful surrounding countryside. Must see !

Although this is basically "a bunch of rocks", you should definately take the time to read about it. Very nice to take photos during the sunrise or sunset. Definately a must see if you are near Évora

This place is well worth visiting, especially towards sunset. It's easy to find, well indicated down a good dirt road, only a short walk from the parking area.

It is a gorgeous drive from Evora out to this stone circle. It's lovely that you can just go & explore without any entrance fee or anyone saying what you can or can't do. You can just go & decide for yourself what you think...More

No public transport, and it's well off the beaten track. We had our own car, but car hire is cheap in Portugal (if you don't do it through an hotel) - probably less than a taxi. Well worth the trek, however you get there. We... More
