Menhirs en dolmen Portugal
Many prehistoric findings have been done around Castelo de Vide, Montemor-o-Nove, Évora, and Monsaraz, such as menhirs and dolmen Portugal. These megalithic tombs have been placed between 4000 and 2000 B.C.. The so-called dolmen Portugal consists of several upright stones with horizontal capstones. They were used as collective graves and, apart from bodies, people also buried art objects, weapons, and tools here.
Menhirs are pretty high rocks, often in the form of a phallus. Long ago, they probably had a religious function. Several menhirs close together, often in the form of a circle or a square, are called cromlechs.
Around Castelo de Vide, 5 kilometres away from our quinta, there are about 50 menhirs and dolmen Portugal including the largest menhir (7.5m high) of the Iberian Peninsula. We have a map available for you on which all menhirs and dolmen Portugal are visible.
