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

There is a 5km drive along a dirt track to reach this site however this does not present any problems. The stones are extremely impressive and the shear number set as they are on the hill present an amazing site. You have to keep reminding yourself that they are around 6000 years old, certainly one of the oldest sites I... More

This site is an easy drive from Evora, although the last part is on well maintained dirt/stone roads that would not be great for road bikes. The site itself is fascinating with many stones in roughly an oval shape overlooking a valley. There is good commentary in English, although I would have liked to have a guide because I could...

It's at the end of a 5km dirt road, so takes a bit of a commitment to get there, but it's an impressive array of standing stones. They're not huge, towering menhirs, but they are surprisingly numerous and it's a lovely site, surrounded by cork trees. Worth a look.

We visited with a guide, Mario who is an archaeologist. He took us to 3 different sites which I doubt we would have found on our own. His in depth explanations of what we were seeing really added to the tour. Look for Ebora Magalithica Guided Tours for a special visit. No question was unanswered by Mario and it made... More

If you love history and want to see something spectacular in a great country setting, this is for you! The road to get there is difficult but the journey is worth it as the megaliths are located in a quiet country setting surrounded by cork trees. Beautiful and impactful - they make a statement that stays with you.
