Tour of prehistoric Évora
The Alentejo, and more precisely the Évora region, is especially rich in megalithic sites. In addition to the Cromeleque dos Almendres, the largest megalithic site on the Iberian Peninsula, there are hundreds of dolmens and solitary menhirs known since the Middle Ages. The Escoural Cave is home to the only remains of Upper Paleolithic rock art in Portugal.
The Anta Grande do Zambujeiro, near Valverde, is a collective funerary monument, while the Anta do Livramento or Anta de São Brissos was transformed into a chapel in the 17th century. Another megalithic site is Vale Maria do Meio, made up of around three dozen menhirs that form a kind of horseshoe, aligned with the stars.
We offer a route designed to visit some of these important monuments in the company of your host, Ricardo.
