ÉVORA TOUR - ALL DAY
Crowned by its imposing cathedral, Évora stands out on a gentle hill on the vast horizon of the Alentejo plain, and preserves its historic center, surrounded by a vast wall of walls, a valuable cultural heritage that UNESCO has classified as a World Heritage Site. The city, where the narrow streets of Moorish evocation contrast with squares flooded with light, rests on two millennia of history.
The white houses, the tiles and the balconies stand out in the details of the architecture. These characteristics make Évora the best example of a city at the height of Portugal's history after the destruction of Lisbon in the earthquake of 1755. Visiting Évora today can be an inspiration.
