Alcalar necropolis is situated north from Alvor and EN125 road. It includes a dozen corridor sepulchres presenting a wide range of architectural solutions and construction techniques, from the purely Megalithic chamber to the false dome with side niches. A buried man was found next to one of those niches wearing silicate and copper weapons. The discovery of buried bodies in foetus position has enabled the study of different burial rituals. The objects that were discovered in the several archaeological campaigns are exhibited in Archaeology National Museum in Lisbon and Lagos Regional Museum.
