Details

Visit the UNESCO recognized town of Evora, to discover why the area is considered a living museum. Portugal’s Alentejo region is characterised by flat landscapes dotted with cork oaks and olive trees and stretches of yellow wheat fields. The region is also home to the town of Évora, shaped by its Roman and Moorish occupations during the middle ages. It flourished as one of the most dynamic towns in the Portuguese kingdom. A guided walking tour of the UNESCO town will show you how the town's splendor has been retained. The narrow alleyways will take you to the Roman Temple with its Corinthian columns, the renaissance style Portas de Moura Fountain, and the Sao Francisco Church. Here, you’ll visit the remarkable Ossuary Chapel where the walls are made of the mortal remains of human bones and skulls. Built in the late 16th century the chapel was seen as a respectful resting place when the value of the land prevented any more cemeteries from being built. After your guided walking tour, there will be some free time for you to spend at leisure and to purchase lunch or refreshments. You may wish to explore the town further or perhaps browse the shops, before the return drive to Lisbon.
