Very interesting paleo period assemblage of large stones, in the manner of Stonehenge. I am not a scholor in these matters but I understand these were found mostly, all?, laying on their sides and archeologists needed to use their best guesses as to the original...More

This was probably used for Solstice ceremonies related to the cycles of nature in the Neolithic period. Great view.

If you have any interest in archeology it’s worthwhile going here to see these 95 standing stones in a circle arranged for astronomical observations of the solstices. I recommend going with Ebora Megalithica which is owned and run by archeologist Mario Carvalho who is a...More

These standing stones (ca 5000 BC) form one of the largest megalithic sites in Europe. We had a car and the signage was good; the roads not so much.

To think that people were living on these hills thousands of years ago is pretty incredible...The cromlech is worth a detour on your way in or out of Évora.

We made this a quick stop on our way into town. It is worth the small diversion to see this historic site. It is well signed, and the path from the parking lot is wide and mostly level.

Take the small group tour with Mario to see these amazing megaliths. He brings it to life with his stories and explanations. This was a highlight of our trip to Portugal.

Walk around these 4 - 6,000 year old arrangements of giant boulders and contemplate the ancient humans who somehow placed them there and how you fit into this cosmic scheme.

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
