Welcome to Évora!
Welcome to Évora, a city-museum included in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1986, thanks to its unique houses embellished with Azulejo tile work and wrought-iron balcony railings dating back to the 16th century. If you take a walk along the banks of the Ribeira River, you'll find the largest Neolithic shrine in Portugal - Anta Grande do Zambujeiro, where Romans founded the city of Eburobrittium in 57 BC.
Close by, you'll see the city's stone walls dating back to 1166, built by the Order of Aviz and still preserved to this day. A bit further down your walk, you can visit the Corinthian Roman Temple or the Temple of Diana, believed to have been built in the 1st century with granite pillars almost 8 meters high.
From there, you can walk to the Gothic-style Cathedral of Évora, and then to the church of St. Francis which has a chapel made of bones with an inscription at the very entrance: “We, the bones that here are await yours.” One of the most interesting tourist attractions is certainly the palace of Vasco da Gama where he lived from 1519 to 1524. If you want to get some rest, head to a most unusual inn situated in a 15th-century monastery - the Lóios Convent, and then visit Carwiz Évora to continue your tour of Portugal.
