    Many signs of that ancient community can still be seen today: a strategic settlement on a hill for defending the people and with a view of the megalithic tombs; artefacts that reveal how they lived and worked; and the megalithic necropolis. To learn more about these monuments, visit the Alcalar Interpretation Centre at Portimão Museum.
