Cromleque Do Vale Maria do Meio

So after the Grand Anta, we were out looking for the Cromlech do Portela de Mogos. Only we, I, got confused, and after wandering for an hour in a cork forest, decided to drive on. A mile down the road was a sign to the Cromleque do Vale Maria do Meio, another important one, so we parked and walked a kilometer to the site. It was another Iberian beauty, reconstructed just a bit, as it was the place where--experimental archaeology!--it took 100 University of Lisbon students to re-erect one of the big stones. Horse-shoe shaped...think: Ohio Stadium! As good as all but a few in the Isles.

I had no idea there were any of these in Portugal.
