The territory surrounding the city of Évora comprises a group of exceptional megalithic monuments, constituting, within the framework of the rural archaeological heritage, the most relevant subject in terms of cultural tourism. Monuments such as the megalithic enclosure of Almendres or the Anta Grande do Zambujeiro, for example, of the most visited, stand out in the megalithic panorama of the Iberian Peninsula and place the region of Évora among the most important European megalithic landscapes.
The remodelling of the permanent exhibition centre goes beyond the maintenance work of the existing scientific contents, by the inclusion of information, referring to the specific reality of the megalithic phenomenon of the county, reinforced by new museological species and new means of interactive exhibition, which will meet the growing interest of the public. This renovation is the outcome of a joint and multidisciplinary work between the Câmara Municipal de Évora, the Direção Regional de Cultura do Alentejo and Pinto Monteiro Archaeology Laboratory at the University of Évora. The new centre will also have museological species provided by the Museum of Évora.
