The summer was taking too long to arrive and so we decided to spend our day enjoying the nature and learning something new. The choice of this weekend was the Cromlech of the Almendres. It’s located near the village of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe and we’ll warn you already that the road to get there is very bad. Surprisingly there were more people than we thought but still, it was quite enjoyable. The Cromlech is the largest existing group of structured menhirs in the Iberian Peninsula and one of the largest in Europe with 95 granite monoliths placed in small clusters in an area of approximately 70 x 40 m. Some of these granite monoliths have decorations like lines and circles but no one knows what they mean. The Almendres Menhir is also possible to visit even though it’s on private property, there is a small fenced access to it.
