We made the stop on our way to Evora. While it was nice to be outside on a beautiful day, especially among the cork trees, the standing stones themselves did not evoke any strong emotions for our family. We wouldn’t recommend a special trip unless...More

Mario was a great tour guide! We learned so much more than we would have if we had visited on our own.

A short drive from Evora you can lose yourself in another time. Almendres Cromlech is reached via a bumpy, potholed dirt road to the hilltop location. Impressive array of stones in a rough circle running down a gently sloped hill with views to the valley...More

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.
