My husband and I were staying at the Pousada in Evora and we asked the desk about a guide that could take us to see the stones and explain what is known about them. They arranged for a man named Victor to come and take us. At the arranged time we went to the lobby to meet him but his... More

My wife and I love seeing these ancient sites and learning about the peoples who lived in those times. This site is quite amazing, they had to work so hard to pull the stones into the correct alignment and spent so much time watching the heavens and trying to figure out the connections between the heavenly bodies and earthly events....

We travelled to find these stones in our own car. It is a bit of a drive and the last couple of km on farm track. We passed lots of animals and through a cork forest. It was very pretty and must be stunning in the Spring.

It is worth a short drive to this megalithic complex located near Guadalupe some 15km from Evora. It is the largest existing group of structured menhirs in the Iberian Peninsula, and one of the largest in Europe. Free access to the complex.

We spent a lot of time visiting megalith sites in Bretagne, and thought it would be interesting to see such sites in Portugal. You do need to persevere though, because the road there is full of holes and very bumpy. Be careful too when you park, since the parking area has a large rut which caused some French tourists to...

if you do not have a rentetd car, plan the visit beforehand - take a guided tour othrwise you'll pay more for taxi (50 Eur). The road, landscape and cromlech itself are beautiful. Do not forget about menhir which is located nearby.

The route to arrive there is very bad if you have no offroadcar. my friend yanik thought the stones will be huge and kinda magic. its just a few stones, might be from a glacier or something. nothing special. and its far from a good street as well. i was pretty pissed by driving all the way to this crab.

Definitely cool, but the signage isn't great. We happened to run into the archeologist on staff who explained it to us. We appreciated it way more after that.

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.
