What you can expect

Take a journey through Portuguese history on this day-long excursion to UNESCO-listed Évora and the impressive Almendres Cromlech. Joined by a private guide, explore remains from the Roman Empire to the Renaissance, and witness evidence of ancient civilisation at a sprawling megalithic complex.

Get picked up from your Lisbon hotel and drive to Évora, the historic capital of the Alentejo region. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Évora is home to a number of monuments and remains from a range of periods, including a Roman Temple said to be constructed in the first century AD. Admire the remnants of the illustrious temple before moving on to the Renaissance Church of St. Francis. Venture into the Chapel of Bones and marvel at the macabre 16th-century walls, composed with the bones of 5,000 skeletons.

From Évora, continue on to the Almendres Cromlech, passing the prehistoric Roman Villa of Tourega and the Great Dolman of Zambujeiro on the way. At Almendres Cromlech, witness the mysterious and profound beauty of the site's rock structures, which are said to have been erected between 5000 and 4000 BC. Your guide explains that the megalithic complex—the largest in the Iberian Peninsula—was likely used for astronomical observation or ceremonial purposes due to their circular formation. Take your time strolling through the fascinating stones before heading back to Lisbon at the end of the day.
