This "Stonehenge" arrangement of pillars dates back to 5,500 BC (7,500 years ago!). It is a magical place. It is an amazing feeling to sit here and contemplate that our ancestors worked so hard to construct a means to divide the year up into a...More

We stopped here as part of the 50 km driving tour around the countryside to view monoliths. This site requires a 5-7 minute walk from the parking lot. While this is not Stonehenge, walking around the concentric rings of large stones forces one to think...More

The dirt road to the Cromlech is well signalized and worth taking. It takes some imagination to figure out how these big stones were placed there. Note the sign at the entrance and try to identify the figures carved on a few of the stones....More

When you are in or near Evora and interested in history this is a place you should visit. Dolmens, standing stones and stone circles can be found all over the place at different sites. Cromeleque dos Almendres is relatively easy to reach. Just of the...More

For those who love archaeology, this is a really easy walk from a small parking lot. The site dates back to before Stonehenge, with some good information provided at the entrance to the path to the site. A quick trip, but worth it if you...More

This the most important megalithic site of Portugal and probably of the Iberain peninsula. Free access, worth a visit, it would be nice to have a little more explanation on site...

We have driven for many miles to search out standing stones throughout Europe and these are very easy to get to if you don't mind driving down a bumpy dirt road. Of course no one can tell you why these stones are here or what...More

A very unpretentious site, but containing very old megaliths dating from 3,000 to 6,000 BC. A must when in Alentejo

It's not a crowded touristic place with souvenirs and a lot of snacks and buses. That is what I liked. Seems still quite authentic for me. A lot of walk or long dirty bare ground road to drive. But it's just menhir. So if you...More

This archeological site, just outside Evora is interesting to see, but even though some explanations are given on a board nearby, it seems that even the scientists do not really now for sure what this arrangement of huge boulders was supposed to represent. The site...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
