Almendres Cromlech, Evora
(4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Amid olive and cork trees on a hillside, find Almendres Cromlech, the most important Megalithic site in Portugal. With 96 stones, this archeological complex is one of the largest groups of its kind in Europe. Discover the various structures that make up this impressive site, including cromlechs and menhir stones. Take in the scenic landscape and explore the site's history, which stretches back thousands of years. View the recently discovered formation, which wasn't known until Henrique Leonor Pina happened upon it while doing fieldwork in 1966. These stones were erected between the sixth and fourth millennium BCE, from the Neolithic to Chalcolithic periods, and were most likely used for religious and ceremonial purposes.

  • Were already out of Evora direction Lisbon, when we saw the signs. Unfortunately without kilometers, so we followed them longer than you think. To the end of a dirt road through beautiful nature. Interesting sight and menhirs in this extraordinary number.

  • If you have the time, nice walk in the middle of the chene-lieges by a dusty track (4 km). The site and impressive.

  • The site is interesting to visit. I think Miss a garita with lookout so that the site could be monitirado. Anyone can come to damage these stones that are thousands of years laid out. It would be a shame to happen something like this, for lack of care to the patrimony.
