  • 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 not so long walk to see the ancient Menhir. Well preserved and easy to access but nothing else around.
  • Timeless and eternal symbol. Worth the dusty journey!
  • 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 must see if you're into History and anthropology.
  • Cool--but only a single monolith.
