A ten hour tour that will take you to visit the beautiful city of Évora, a World Heritage Site, the Almendres Cromlech and the Large Dolmen of Zambujeiro!

The tour will begin in the city of Évora, in the Historical Centre, a UNESCO Site. Human presence in Évora counts thousands of years, since pre-historic times, as archaeological remains are able to prove.

During the Roman occupation, Liberalitas Julia, as it was known, was an important city of the Lusitania province. The Roman Temple, at the top of the hill, remembers the Empire presence and is the ex-libris of the city.

The Cathedral, built in the 13th century, and the Bones Chapel, a curious testimony of Human fragility, will be also visited and we will invite you, during the walking tour, to appreciate the admirable contrast the city preserves itself between its ancient memories and the agitation of its university life.

After lunch, we will take you to know the Almendres Cromlech, the oldest megalithic monument in the world, built 7 000 years ago, 2 000 years before Stonehenge, in Britain. It is also the biggest megalithic monument in the Iberian Peninsula, with approximately 100 monoliths.

Visit the “Anta Grande do Zambujeiro”, a collective funerary monument, built 6 000 years ago. This Dolmen has a large corridor leading to the big chamber, which is, probably, the highest in the world, with about 6m high.

During the tour you will be able to appreciate the extraordinary landscape of Alentejo, the enchanted region of Portugal!
