Town Walls information

Lonely Planet review

About one-fifth of Évora’s residents live within the town’s old walls, some of which are built on top of 1st-century Roman fortifications. Over 3km of 14th-century walls enclose the northern part of the old town, while the bulwarks along the southern side, such as those running through the jardim público (public gardens), date from the 17th century.
