I lost count at the number of "rocks" we rode our bikes to but it was fun and enjoyable. My husband kept me informed of the history on each site and I took the pictures.

Approximately 7,000 years old, this is a great example of the various stone circles one can visit. It is amazing to stand among the stones and it is fun to follow the diagram in the signage to try and locate the stones with various drawings....More

We spent an extra night in nearby Evora so we could visit the stones - 95 granite stones in oval shape - very impressive - over 2,000 years older than Stonehenge. Well worth the visit

Short drive from Evora. Stay on the road past the one megalith, to the grouping of them. The mystery continues. The views from this area are very nice also. You are right in the middle of a cork tree field.

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
