We have a passion for megaliths. And sharing this passion is our mission.Present day Evora is in the center of an ancestral landscape that has a significance for all Humanity. Here you can find the remains of some of the oldest monuments of mankind in Western Europe.The early farmers and shepherds that created them, some 7500 years ago, didn't just create beautiful and impressive monuments - they have envisioned an entirely new way of relating with their world and have set the foundations for our current way of life.The megaliths, embodying the new ideology of this period in it's fullest - the domestication and transformation of the natural environment - remain today as distant messages, hidden in the fullness of time.Join one of our tours and discover more about your own history.

This has been the highlight of a month in Portugal. Mario's knowledge and enthusiasm make the whole experience. Visiting these ancient neolithic sites is amazing but the information provided by Mario about each site makes the experience outstanding. An absolute must do in Portugal! Jo Australia

Loved Mario's tour of the megalith's outside Evora and, to be honest, had we only used a guide book and existing signage, we would not have understood nor appreciated the megaliths anywhere near as much as we did thanks to him. For example, we would not have been able to recognize nor read the carvings on the stones without our... More

We loved our tour with Mario. We had a 12 year old with us, who enjoyed it as well, so it's definitely suitable for children. Seeing the Megaliths with him makes all the difference, otherwise it's difficult to understand what they are. Mario gave in depth explanations, and was able to answer all our questions, whether directly linked to the... More

He is passionate about not just archaeology but also his homeland . Mario and his driver Maria picked us up along... More

Prior to the tour with Mario, I only had vague memories of this period of human civilization history from school. By being amongst these ancient sites, he stoked my curiosity and I truly appreciate doing this tour with him. Very worth a few hours of time and €25.

The Ebora Magalithica Guide Tour conducted by Mario Carvalho was fascinating, informative and well worth the 25 Euros. Mario has a Master degree in Archaeology and is very knowledgeable about the subject. The sites are located about a half hour from Evora. He came in a clean air conditioned van to my hotel to pick me up. On the drive... More
