I follow the directions in my guidebook and drive west from Évora on the old Lisbon Road (N114), and then turn south to Guadalupe. I follow the signs from there, down a pitted, gauged out dirt road to the Cromeleque dos Almendres.
This morning, I will not be visiting a 700 year old castle. Instead, my destination is a pre-historic sacred site, 7000 years old.
Surrounded by a landscape of olive trees and cork trees, I stroll among a circular group of one hundred Ancient Neolithic megaliths.
