  • Sure, it takes a little time to get there, including 2 km of track and 500 metres from market, for a few minutes on the spot... But for fans, it's always interesting to see!

  • After 4 km to the cromlech at the back make 200 or 300 meters walk to go see menhir. too bad the pedestrian path no longer clean already had some Bush

  • To reach the Menhir is necessary to walk a few meters, which is exciting because we don't know (when for the first time) what we're going to find ... But I'm disappointed by the monument itself. In my opinion not very interesting ...

  • Cool--but only a single monolith.
  • It's a free roam type of place, no tickets, no fuss. The road is long and unpaved and quite bumpy with ripples, it's a bit uncomfortable, but any car can take it. For the single stone, wear appropriate footwear. The grouped stones are wheelchair accessible, the single stone isn't. Take water with you and use the toilet before going. It also gives you a chance to see the cork trees up close. I think there are also guided tours on horses, but don't know where to apply for that.
  • A little info board at the site would be a nice to have.
  • It's a single standing stone after about 5 mins walk.
  • Close to Cromeleque Dos Almendres. Worth a visit.

Where to stay in Evora

Take advantage of Evora's array of ancient and historical sites by staying in one of the many mid-range hotels located within its medieval core. Thanks to a mix of Roman, Moorish, and later European buildings, the entire center is listed as a World Heritage Site, so this area provides a great base for sightseeing by foot. To save a little on accommodations, you can also check into one of the hostels in town, most of which are located in the city center or on its winding residential streets that branch off from the main squares. These usually have shared, dorm-style rooms, but can get you right in the midst of the action at a very low cost.
