Monumentos Megalíticos de Alcalar (The prehistoric site of Alcalar)

One of the most important archaeological sites in the south of the country is located in Alcalar, in the civil parish of Mexilhoeira Grande.
Here we can explore the material remains of a megalithic community, where dozens of mortuary temples together with dwellings allow us to learn about the religious beliefs, rituals, death and daily life in the prehistoric community.
Because of the importance of the site, visitors have a welcome and interpretation centre at their disposal, and predefined, signposted pathways help to better understand the value of these monuments.
