An interesting archaeological site rich in history. The stones are amazing to see - makes you wander who placed them there and why they are positioned as they currently are. It is a must-see site once in the area.

Long dirty road to get there, once you are there is nice and interesting, I've always admire these monuments, makes you wonder what was their purpose, who placed them there, likely Celtic culture for astronomical purposes. There are a lot of these all over Europe, is not visited at all so we felt off the beaten path by ourselves.

If you find yourself in or around Evora take some time to visit the Almendres Cromlech Megaliths. These Megaliths are enormous stones positioned in an oval pattern. They date back to the 6th century BC. It is quite a site to see, the rock range in size from 4ft to 8ft roughly and are all standing upright instead of down... More

It was very interesting visiting the megaliths outside of Evora. We got there early in the morning so we had the site to ourselves. It's a very calm and peaceful place go when the crowds aren't there.

I’m not sure if it is a place that everybody is able to enjoy and/or feel. If you are lucky to be there alone or only with your family and friends almost for sure you’ll feel something special; something that one doesn’t have necessary to describe. Enjoy!

Our hotel, ADC Evora, got us a cab to the Megaliths. It is about half an hour outside of Evora. Our driver was friendly, courteous and filled us in on a lot of the history of the megaliths. This is Portugal's "Stonehenge." We arrived just before sunset. We were surprised to find preparations underway for a religious ceremony to honor... More

It's a little hard to get to on your own, and the interpretation on the site is a bit limited. Highly suggest getting a guided tour because there is so much more to learn than what is on the interpretive panel. For megalith bluffs, another easily accessible mind-blower

Easy drive to the site. These ruins are actually older than Stonehedge in England. Something worthwhile to see a few miles out of Evora.

Having read previous Tripadvisor reviews, I decided that this was something I must do. We decided we would get the most out of seeing these special rocks by going late afternoon / twilight. Google maps said it was fifteen minutes away. What it didn't say was after you arrived at the turnoff to the site, it was fifteen minutes on... More
