  • Hard night path, despite the help of a flashlight up to this massive menhir. Lovely to see it illuminated by the Moonlight, looking even bigger. It was a nice walk "dark" until this "alleged" symbol of fertility

  • One should definately take the time to read about these pieces of history. Definately a must see if you are near Évora  more »
  • Worth knowing by the historical value and for being near the Almendres cromlech, but one should not expect too much. The attraction is not paid, is in a private-owned and access is easy. It has an area to park the car and the reach of the Menhir is bad because practically walk some 300 metres into a ditch of irregular land that only passes a person. I missed more information on site. The megalithic circuit is not widely circulated as main attractions in Évora, it pays to know more about the dolmens as well.

  • A short walk in. Less grand than the main site but still interesting
  • The way to the menir is a rough dirt road and the parking is the same, the path from the parking to the menir is even thougher and call for a goos pair of hiking shoes, especially wen the soil is wet. The menir it self is very disappointing in my opinion, it is just a rock. There is no information available on site and unless you go with a guide, you are just looking at a vertical stamding rock.
  • One of the primary reasons to visit the Evora area is to see the Menir dos Almendres. Be sure to go with a guide or you are probably wasting your time.
  • Allow time to explore this amazing phenomenon
  • A not so long walk to see the ancient Menhir. Well preserved and easy to access but nothing else around.
