Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Menir do Monte dos Almendres (Evora), Evora Portugal
The Alentejo region contains numerous Neolithic stone formations and the finest is the Almendres Cromlech. The 95 standing stones of the Almendres Cromlech form two large stone circles and were once part of a ceremonial site dedicated to a celestial religion.
The entire monument was constructed over a very long period, with the first stones laid in 6,000b.c., and was in continual use until 3,000b.c.
The Almendres Menhir is single standing stone near Evora in Portugal dating from 5000-4000 b.c. Standing about 4 meters high, it has some faint markings near the top. It is aligned with the nearby Almendres Cromlech roughly towards the sunrise on the winter solstice. Local legend has it that the menhir is the tomb of an enchanted Moorish princess, who can be seen combing her hair once each year on the eve of So Joo.
