Description

You will be driven from Lisbon to Evora. Around the city you can discover some of the best preserved megalithic monuments in Europe. They have fascinated mankind for years and you too will be captivated by the mystery of their religious significance, their history of origin and the interplay between monument and nature.

In Pavia you will visit a so-called dolmen. The prehistoric burial chamber was built of stone in the city centre. Today it has been converted into a chapel in honour of St. Dinis. Not far away, you can admire the most extensive megalithic complex in the whole country, the Anta Grande do Zambujeiro. The inviting tomb is located near a small river and is also called the cathedral of the stone age.

You will visit stone circles and more complex prehistoric sites that represent the importance of life and reproduction. Visit the cromlech of Almendres, which is composed of 95 individual menhirs. It is thousands of years older than the world-famous Stonehenge and also very impressive. Find out all about its religious and astronomical function before you drive to Xerez, where an unusually designed monument awaits you. On the way to Monsaraz you should pay attention to the approximately 6 meter high Menhir do Outeiro before you enjoy your lunch in a local restaurant in Alandroal.

Experience the impressive natural forces that seem to be tangible in these unique places. Be inspired by the primitive sanctuary in Rocha da Mina, dedicated to the god Endovellicus from the Iron Age. Learn the local legends and get to know the ritual ceremonies that take place here
