  • If we come from Castle of Monsaraz road M514, in little less than 2 kms. We will find a dirt track that leaves us in front of this magnificent cromlech in 200 meters. There is space for parking, although you can also leave your car in the intersection and make this small stretch walk. This gorgeous set is composed of about 50 standing stones of granite, many of them broken, and who were originally scattered, so it was necessary to proceed with its reconstruction. It highlights the large menhir located in its Centre, 4 meters high and weighing 7 tons. The set is dated between the IV and III BC millennia It is not in its original location, since in 2004, during the construction of the Alqueva dam, there was move; However, this fact does not diminish him at all. If we are in Monsaraz we must not approach us, drive will not take more than five minutes. Access is completely free and open.

  • A really good restaurant with local cuisine of Alentejo region. Really recommend. Beautiful view as the place is on top of the castle.
  • Splendid view to the East (so not the lake). Used to be rather good. Disappointing now. Staff not very friendly. Spoiled by too many tourists coming here
  • Amazing view, but the atmosphere, service and food don't match expectations...
  • Nice vieuw..
  • Great Food but poor service. Too long for The Food to come.
