Next, you can explore the Bones Chapel if you wish. Enter an otherworldly space that holds the skulls and skeletons of around 5000 monks from the sixteenth century as well as two completely intact corpses displayed in the chapel. Feel free to sit this one out if it sounds a bit too disturbing.
At lunchtime, dine in one of the best Évora restaurants and taste some delicious regional cuisine. Then visit the Cathedral of Evora, a Roman-Gothic church from the eighth century. Climb the tower to get a breathtaking view of the city and the fields surrounding it.
Afterwards, go to a farm where you can taste some typical Alentejo wines. Thanks to the region's unique climate, the vineyards in the area produce some of the best wines in Portugal. On the way back to Lisbon, stop in Arraiolos and marvel at the unusual circular architecture of fourteenth century castle while wandering around the well-preserved old walls. Then learn about the famous Arraiolos carpets and see firsthand how they are produced by hand before picking your favorite to take home as a souvenir.
