History and pre-history
There are many historical and pre-historical artefacts in the surroundings. Too many to mention them all. Pre-historical are the menhirs, dolmen and cromlechs. The Almendres cromlech is a must. Smaller but not less impressive is the cromlech of Vale do Meio. You will need a route description to find it. From the time of the romans there is much more preserved. The roman ruins in Torrega are worth a visit. The historical city of Évora (World Heritage) also has a lot of roman monuments and more. Roman, Gothic, Manueline, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassic, all the epochs of history can be found in Évora.
