We so enjoyed touring the cromlech and other neolithic sites in the Evora area. Haunting, and so interesting, beautiful surrounding countryside. Must see !

Although this is basically "a bunch of rocks", you should definately take the time to read about it. Very nice to take photos during the sunrise or sunset. Definately a must see if you are near Évora

This place is well worth visiting, especially towards sunset. It's easy to find, well indicated down a good dirt road, only a short walk from the parking area.

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