If this sort of thing is your thing, then you need to see it. I’ve seen Stonehenge and I’ve seen The Standing Stones of Callanish and now I’ve seen Comeleque do Xerez. This is the least impressive of the three, certainly in part because it...More

Look up the historic significance as there is no information at the sight. Still worthwhile to visit.

Located on a dusty, just off the road location below the charming village of Monsaraz, this Cromlech is a wonderfully etherial experience. The central menhir is about 10' ft high and unique. This is a rarely visited place, not on the level of the cromlech...More

Great place to visit with historic interest, and perfect to night watchers and photographers to make great long exposures and catch the starry sky of this area.

There is a feast of megalithic stone sites throughout Portugal that have been carefully identified, studied, protected and found/noted by unique highway signage. In the Alentejo region there are literally 100's of them inclucing the impressive "Menhir dos and Cromlech dos Almendras" near Evora and...More

So it's stones, roughly similar to the stones you find at Cromeleque dos Almendres near Evora. But these guys were moved because of the Dam at Barragem do Alqueva. Moved. As in no longer on the sacred, chosen, significant spot they were first placed on,...More

We were on our way to Monsaraz, so we stopped here to view. It is down a rutted out dirt road, so be careful of the type of vehicle you are in. What can you say about it? I understand there are many sites with...More

Cromeleque do Xerez is nearby Monsaraz, and worth a visit if you are around (don't do a lot of kms to go there). this is not the original location of it, and if you see it, it is not a circle as original but a...More

In my opinion stones are not extraordinary interesting, however worth to see if you have some free time on the way from Lizbon to Evora. Although stones did not make a huge impression on me, I have to admit that place itself is extremely relaxing,...More
