East of Portugese town Évora there are several very old megalitic structures and sacred places. The most important of them is the Almendres cromlech that is also sometimes called the “Portugese Stonehenge”. The most suitable way to get there is the train connection from Lisbon to Évora, and than to take taxi for the remaining approx. 15 km. There is no public transport available to Almendres.
In the neighbourhood east of the main structure there is one lonely menhir, standing approx. 4,5m tall. The line from the Almendres cromlech to this menhir points in the direction of sunset during the winter solsctice.
