Whilst Évora may be able to boast some quite impressive historic credentials there is a site, less than half an hour drive away that predates anything in the city by thousands of years. Built in the early Stone Age the Almendres Cromlech (Cromleque dos Almendres) dates back over 6,000 years. Virtually from the founding of the Santa Clara monastery in the early 14th century it was apparent that having an adequate water supply was going to be an issue. Initially there was a cistern within the monastery but as it grew this was no longer sufficient. Lisbon Belem district as its shown in Portugal monuments map is home to a striking was memorial dedicated to the memory of the soldiers who lost their lives in the conflict. Two large black and white pillars slope together to form an inverted V-shape above an eternal flame. The walls surrounding the monument contain the name of all the Portuguese soldiers who lost their lives.
The Roman Temple of Évora is said by some to be the best-preserved Roman structure on the Iberian Peninsula. It was once thought to be the Temple of Diana, the goddess of hunting, and many still call it by this name, but this attribution appears to date back to the views of a 17th century priest, without any historical or archaeological foundation. The 17th century Church of Santa Engrácia with its huge dome was designated the National Pantheon in 1966 as its mentioned in Portugal monuments map. Within are buried many of Portugal presidents and cultural icons. Most tours of Lisbon will pass through the Praca dos Restauradores in the Baixa district. Here, towering over the centre of the plaza is a 30-metre high, white obelisk, built to commemorate those who fought in the 17th century War of Restoration, helping to free the country from six decades of Spanish rule under the Habsburg dynasty.
