Full description
Visit Évora, a Portuguese town classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on a full-day tour from Lisbon. Évora is sometimes referred to as the "White City" and also "City Museum," because it dazzles its visitors with lush architectural and artistic monumental churches, historic squares, white houses, and narrow medieval streets. Évora invites you to discover a city that is synonymous of mix of cultures; from the Romans to the Arabs, Jews to Christians, all its traditions and expressions are clearly present here.

On your small group trip to Évora, you will be picked up from your Lisbon hotel at 8:30 AM before setting out. After arrival, make your way to the historic city center. Évora was taken from the Moors and went on to become one of the most prosperous cities of the kingdom, especially during the Avis Dynasty (1385-1580).

Next, visit the Roman Temple of Évora, often referred to as the Temple of Diana. It is a Corinthian-style temple, built in the early first century A.D. Continue on to the Chapel of Bones. It is a chapel located next to the Church of St. Francis, and its walls are all lined with human bones.

After lunch, visit Évora Cathedral. This is a Romanesque-Gothic building and you can climb to the towers and go to the roof where you have amazing views over the city and the countryside.

After leaving the city, continue to visit a wine farm, Here visit the facilities and learn about the manufacturing and packaging of wine. Then enjoy a wine and olive oil tasting (not included).

On your way back to Lisbon, pass by Arraiolos, located about 12.5 miles (20 kilometers) northwest of Évora. Visit the castle and the church of "Senhor dos Passos." Then learn about the famous Arraiolos carpets, wool rugs embroidered with the stitch of the same name, on a jute cloth made of cotton or linen. The knowledge of this craft has been passed from generation to generation in Arraiolos.

You will return to Lisbon around 5:00 PM.
