The view of the surrounding landscape of Monsaraz is spectacular. From the castle you will see olive groves, winding roads, and the river area of the Rio Guadiana towards Spain.
Around Monsaraz there are many Neolithic megaliths and tombs. You will feel like a true explorer when you search for them by walking through a landscape with fields of wildflowers and olive groves. The most spectacular of the menhirs and dolmen is the Cromeleque do Xerez, 1.5 kilometers to the north of Monsaraz. Also the menhir of Bulhao, 4 kilometers to the north of Monsaraz, with its intriguing carved circles and lines, is very special.
