Full with history, you can find at the Almendres Cromlech a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful views.
It is not difficult to find, just follow the signs existing on the road after you leave the city of Évora on the way to the highway to Lisbon.

We asked the hotel staff for directions because we had difficulty finding the road the first day. This area is west of Evora. Take N-114 to Guadalupe. There will be a sign pointing to Guadalupe on your left. The signs will lead you through the small town and then have you take a right. These signs are clearly marked. The roads are paved to the area. There is a place to park the car and then you need to walk maybe 2-3 minutes to where the stones are located. It is interesting to look at some of the cork trees that have been harvested. There are 92 stones in somewhat of a circle. Some of the stones have markings carved in them. They say that these stones date back to 2,000 BC. It is interesting to see. There is very little information available at the site.
