It is fascinating to see so many stones of thousands of years laid in a circular manner. It is matching to the Stonehenge in Britain. The entrance is free but is it 15km from evora town. You need to have your own public transport to go there.

This sight was started in 6000 BC. The fascinating part about this site are the granite monoliths, some of them have carved drawings.I would highly recommend a visit to the site as one can see structures from from the prehistoric ages.

Just 20 minutes from Evora, it's a great little trip if you like prehistoric culture and nature. The environment is beautiful, with cows between the cork trees...

As long as you don't mind getting your car a little dirty on the dirt road, this site provides a nice stop on your way to or from Evora. One of the other sites we couldn't get to because of a large puddle of water in the road that we didn't want to drive the rental car through, but no... More

This is one of the most interesting sites that we have visited. To see these ancient rounded rocks and walk amongst them. If we were to do it again we would go with the Evora Megalithic tour group. We met one of their tours and the guide was giving a lot of information about the sites. Apparently they visit the... More

We took the half day tour offered by Ebora Megalithica Guided Tours. Our guide Mario was very knowledgeable and gave a very interesting tour. He not only answered questions about the sites, but also about anything we asked about Portugal. Highly recommended! This was the highlight of our trip to Portugal.

We love to search out megaliths, menhir, etc. The Almendres Cromlech were terrific. Best part, you can walk among them and feel their ancient surfaces.
