Situated near the village of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe,15 Kms from Evora, these are ancient standing stone, a few with barely discernible inscriptions. An unpaved but motor-able road leads from Guadalupe village to the site, a distance of 5Kms. You can opt to walk the...More

very long dusty road to get there. the stones are amazing, but it's maybe 30 minutes there. They have two plaques that are informative, but I wouldn't go there as anything more than a stop over to somewhere else.

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.

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
