Tour description

Évora is one of the most beautiful preserved medieval town and inside its 14th-century walls, Évora’s narrow, winding streets leads to striking architectural works. Aside from its historic virtues, Évora is also a lively university town, and its many attractive restaurants serves up hearty Portuguese Alentejan cuisine. Outside of town, Neolithic monuments and rustic wineries make for fine day tours.

This is a "Hop-on Hop off" private tour. We pick you up at the meeting location (any point in Lisbon Area), and start our tour in Évora. Whit a lovely tranquil stroll, heading to the light-dappled public gardens. The old city is surrounded by medieval walls, giving it a unique characteristic that set this museum-city apart from others. One of this city most popular sights is one of the most chilling chapel with the interiors decorated using human bones. The walls and columns are lined with the bones and skulls of some 5000 people. One of the strangest sights of Portugal and certainly not for the faint hearted. In the middle of Évora, the remains of a roman temple, dating from the 2nd or early 3rd century, are a heady slice of drama. Its one of the best preserved evidence of the Roman empire in Portugal. Poking around town, you will find some of the oldest and fabulous churches, fortress-like medieval cathedrals, and museums jam.packed with ecclesiastical treasures. A landmark in Évora is 8,5 km roman Aqueduct, starting from outside town. At the end of the aqueduct, the neighborhood seems like a self-contained village, with houses, shops and cafes builted right into the arches.

This plaza is better known to be the main inquisitorial court during the Spanish inquisition and scenario of numerous protests and rebellions during the early formation of Portugal.
