Geocache Description:


Anta de Aguiar

Anta1

Monumento megalítico conserva ainda o corredor, a câmara funerária e a lage de cobertura ainda que tombada.

Local estratégico nas rotas do sul por méritos próprios se tornou Viana do Alentejo um centro de concorridas romagens, escolha de reis para Cortes e Tratados, domínio cobiçado por famílias de primeira linhagem.

Aos belos e ricos atributos com que a natureza a dotou, acrescentaram-lhe os homens um património monumental digno de visita e contemplação.

Mostruário de épocas e estilos, nele predomina a arquitectura sacra, ou não fosse, durante séculos, o culto da Senhora d’Aires motor das mais floridas romagens que buscavam o sul do pais.

Aguiar Dolmen

This megalithic monument still has its passage, its funeral chamber and its capstone tough this has fallen.

Viana do Alentejo has become a centre for extremely popular pilgrimages due to its strategic position, routes leading south. It was chosen by kings to set up their courts and sign treaties and was an area sought by the best families.

Together with the natural beauties of the region, we must considerer the heritage in monuments that men have built over the years. Viana do Alentejo is a showcase of different styles, with special emphasis on religious art, as devotion to Nossa Senhora D’Aires was the focus of one of the most impressive pilgrimages in the South of Portugal.
