Full description
After being collected from your hotel in Lisbon, you will embark on a tour where you will visit the historical center of the city of Evora. Evora was taken by the Moors and became one of the kingdom's most prosperous cities, and you will learn all about this conquest during your tour.

Following the city center, you will visit the Roman Temple of Evora, also known as the Temple of Diana. It is a Corinthian-style temple, which was built in the early 1st century AD. Following this, you will progress onward to the Bones Chapel, located next to the Church of Saint Francis. One most peculiar element of this chapel that you will learn about, is that its walls are entirely lined with human bones.

After lunch, you will visit the Cathedral of Evora, a beautiful monument constructed in a Romanesque-Gothic style. Here you will also have the option to climb up to the towers to go to the roof and enjoy the amazing view of the city and the countryside.

You will continue to the banks of the Alqueva river to take a wonderful stroll past the calm waters of the Great Lake of Alqueva, before embarking on a serene boat ride to cap off your day. At the conclusion of this sightseeing and education tour, you will be returned to your accommodation in Lisbon.
