Treasures of the Past of Guadalupe e Valverde
This Central Alentejo, very close from Évora, was the
birthplace of so many civilizations. Here we find the vestiges
of distant past that refer us to prehistory where we can find
what is considered the oldest monument of humanity and the
largest dolmen of Portugal, where our ancestors bade farewell
to their dead in so different cults of our days.
In the middle of the montado woods we find the perfect cross
between the history and the myth where remains medieval castles
from past heroes of the Christian reconquest from Évora
to the Moors.
