Your experience


You’ll drive from Lisbon towards Evora and the surrounding area in order to explore some best preserved megalithic monuments among Europe. These monuments fascinate humans since centuries. You’ll be caught up by the riddle of their religious meaning and their emergence as well has how they interact with the environment.

In Pavia, you’ll visit a dolmen built just in the center of the village. Nowadays, it has been converted into a chapel dedicated to St. Dinis. Not far away you can admire the so called the Grand Dolmen of Zambujeiro. It is the largest burial chamber in South Portugal and shows the primitive relation of these monuments towards death.

Cromlechs and Menhirs are stone circles or more elaborated megalithic sites, symbolizing the meaning of life and fertility. Visit the Almendres Cromlech, probably the most impressive monument, which has been built of 95 single monoliths. It is centuries older than the famous Stonehenge and at least as impressive. Get to know its astronomical and religious functions before heading to Xerez, a more unconventional monument because of its unusual squared design. On the way to Monsaraz you should watch out for the Menhir do Outeiro, before having a typical lunch in a restaurant in Alandroal.

Experience the impressive forces of nature which seem to be tangible at these special places. You’ll be touched while visiting the Primitive Sanctuary at Rocha da Mina. It is dedicated to the iron age god Endovellicus. Listen to his legends and the sacred ceremonies and rituals that took place here. The place full of magic within nature will impress you.
