Description

We want to take you inside a time machine and arrive back a few centuries ago, as our first stop is the former roman town of Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986, with roman, visigoth, muslim and portuguese influence. In Évora history crosspaths with us in every corner, in this big puzzle of historical monuments with more than 1000 years old. The walking tour starts at São Francisco church and the Bones Chapes, one of the must see places in Évora. Heading next to the medieval heart of the city where the Cathedral (the biggest in Portugal) can be found but also some antique testimonials like, Roman Temple cand the Roman baths. There will also be time for an olive oil tasting, free time to shop and to lunch … by any means skip the local food. Definitely no to skip the 2027 European Cultural Capital.
