Fairly rough road to get to the location but was cool when you get there. It's amazing when you understand the age of the rocks and the effort in placement.

Loved this place The signs help tell the story and it is most thought provocative. Who did this? Not discovered till 1960's, how many more are there out there in those rocky fields?

Well worth the drive out. Best to see this place without crowds around. There is a feel to it as you circle the stones. A sense of the distant past. A connection to people like ourselves from long ago. A mystery and also a bond...More

Ir you aré in Evora, don't miss this testimony of man's past in the area. It is not all "organized" like the pictures you see of Stonehenge, but you might be able to see some of the inscriptions and it is also interesting to go...More

This could be so great but alas, the site is getting ruined. some of the Megaliths were attempted protection with a roof that is too small and the water run off is actually causing more damage. the roads are little more than dirt paths and...More

We visited the site with a very competent guide. He picked us up with a driver at our hotel along with a few other persons coming from other hotels. He knows the way and the site being an archeologist himself. The... More

No public transport, and it's well off the beaten track. We had our own car, but car hire is cheap in Portugal (if you don't do it through an hotel) - probably less than a taxi. Well worth the trek, however you get there. We... More
