Set off for the countryside around Évora and discover areas inhabited since Mesolithic times, where you will find a range of structures including cave systems, stone-circles, Shell-middens, and dolmens. Should you not have much time, we highly recommend Montemor-o-Novo, Évora, and Monsaraz where you will find the most impressive concentration of these prehistoric structures. Near Monsaraz, you have Olival da Pega, Xerez, Outeiro, Belhõa, Barrocal, and Monte da Ribeira. In the area near Évora, we recommend dropping by the town of Pavia where you can see the dolmen-turned-Catholic chapel of São Denis, an example of the Christianization of a monument once considered pagan.
