Overview

We have a passion for megaliths. And sharing this passion is our mission.Present day Evora is in the center of an ancestral landscape that has a significance for all Humanity. Here you can find the remains of some of the oldest monuments of mankind in Western Europe.The early farmers and shepherds that created them, some 7500 years ago, didn't just create beautiful and impressive monuments - they have envisioned an entirely new way of relating with their world and have set the foundations for our current way of life.The megaliths, embodying the new ideology of this period in it's fullest - the domestication and transformation of the natural environment - remain today as distant messages, hidden in the fullness of time.Join one of our tours and discover more about your own history.

If there is a more passionate, educated and enthusiastic guide than Mario we never met him. What a great insightful tour. If you are fortunate enough to get into one of his personal 7 person tour, you are indeed fortunate!

Mario lives up to all of the superlatives written in earlier reviews. He is a qualified archeologist and has encyclopaedic knowledge of these Neolithic monuments. It is a tragedy that the Municipality of Evora had allowed all of the key sights to become so run...More

We joined the tour at the last minute. Mario was flexible enough to let us know join in our car, since his tour van was full. The group was small- about 12- and we went to three sites. Mario is well-informed and an engaging speaker....More

I paid in cash after the trip. I'm sure they appreciate cash, given the small operation.
