Historic Site
“The Megalithic (or Cromeleque) of the Almendres is the largest megalithic monument of the Iberian Peninsula and one of the oldest in the world. Everyone has heard of the great Stonehenge in Britain ... The Almendres monument is 2000 years older! It was built about 7000 years ago, when humankind made the transition in Western Europe from hunter-gatherers to shepherds and farmers.”

Historic Site
“O Templo, construído, na primeira metade do século I d. C., que como hoje o podemos observar, é o vestígio mais evidente do que foi o forum da cidade romana, grande praça que se estendia, na sua maior extensão, no sentido norte-sul, totalmente envolta por um pórtico e que, na sequência de trabalhos arqueológicos realizados naquela área, sabemos que ocupava todo o espaço que vai, aproximadamente, do limite sul do jardim até à Sé e do Palácio da Inquisição até ao Palácio Cadaval. De planta rectangular, com 25x15m, hexastilo (com seis colunas no alçado principal) e períptero (com colunas isentas a envolverem todo o perímetro da cela).”
