Full description
Évora is the capital of the Upper Alentejo, an old city surrounded by crenellated walls, where you'll still find alive the remains of Roman presence, Arab culture and Portuguese history spanning across the last 900 years. A royal residence for long periods, Évora still keeps the glamour of the best aristocratic architecture from the 16th and 17th centuries. Tens of monuments can be explored and discovered inside the ancient medieval city featured with twisted alleyways ripped in the urban mesh of whitewashed houses with ocher painted strips.

Évora is known as the Portuguese Museum City and was classified as a World Heritage Site in 1986. On this trip, you'll explore monumental Évora on a guided tour where the main monuments will be visited, like the Roman Temple and Bathes, the Gothic Cathedral, the St. Francis Church and its Chapel of Bones, the Giraldo Square, the Mudejar styled Chapel of St. Brás and much more.

Walking around the city, you'll feel the history in every corner, square and alleyway. Visit the town of Arraiolos, wind up to its medieval castle and appreciate the traditional handmade embroidered rugs in famous specialized shops. Traveling in the surroundings of Évora, you can admire the beautiful landscape of the Alentejo region featured with plains, cork tree forests, olive tree groves, whitewashed houses and the bluer blue sky of Portugal. The tour begins at 08:45 and finishes about 9 hours later at your hotel.
