An ancient and amazing monument with beautiful surroundinds, in the middle of the woods. Has a very particular and interesting energy. I absolutely recommend it if your're visiting Évora.

When planning your visit to Évora, this is a must see if you have your own transportation. Long before the Roman ruins, these boulders were arranged in a sophisticated and scientific fashion. In fact, it is so complicated, subsequent studies are not able to fully explain the pattern.

It’s not easy to find and although the road is a “beaten path” the area may not be available during inclement weather.

It’s fascinating!

There are many monolith/megalith sites dotting the countryside around the city of Evora. The Almendres Cromlech is one of the more interesting sites due to the sheer number of boulders that were arranged in a circle (almost 100). Several still have evidence of original carvings (they can be difficult to find) and the setting is quite beautiful. The drive in is a challenge as the last few km are along a severely rutted dirt road. The area is well signed and it's about a 200m walk from the small parking lot to the megalith site.

This is an amazing place to visit, well preserved peaceful (in the morning) and a great place to play hide and seek with the kids,

The road up there is a dirt road - dusty if dry but passable if driving slowly

I am sorry to say that we got within .5KM of the site and had to turn around. It took us about 45 minutes to travel from the main road because the ruts were so deep. When we were close to the location there was a huge pool of water and we could not tell how deep it was and what lay underneath so we had to turn around. Not to mention we were not supposed to be off road with our rental car. Proceed with Caution
