From the coast we drove inland to a bit of the Portuguese heartland, Alentejo. There are probably megalithic bits all over Portugal, but in Alentejo, around Evora, there is a concentration that qualifies as a megalithic center, or centers, and which is world-class. We had been there before, visiting the Iberian Stonehenge, the Cromlech do Almendres and the largest of all dolmen, the Anta Grande do Zambujero. But we wanted to see more. Before getting to Evora, however, we stopped for the night at a camping aire in the small town of Alcacovas. After dinner in the camper, we walked about the sleepy little town, looking in particular for a 16th century royal residence.
