Évora: a paradise beyond the Tagus River

Évora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986 and it has an extremely important cultural and architectural richness, from Roman constructions to great examples of the Manueline style. This city was especially remarkable in the XVI century when it became a cultural point of reference.

Among the great number of monuments spread around the city, we can mention the following as the most emblematic: the Cathedral, the Igreja de São Francisco, the Capela dos Ossos, the Palácio de D. Manuel, the Roman Temple or the Praça do Giraldo. Besides its architectural richness, we also recommend you to visit the different museums of Évora, such as the Museum of Sacred Art or the Museum of Évora. Follow your adventurous spirit and explore the rest of the region by visiting other nearby interesting cities such as Monsaraz or Evoramonte.

In Évora, as well as in the rest of the country, you may taste delicious and traditional dishes. The Alentejo gastronomy stands out for the use of spices like the coriander and for the well-known açordas and migas. Do not leave Évora without tasting the carne de porco à alentejana or the pastry desserts. Enjoy the most traditional dishes along with the best wine, since you are in one of the most important wine regions of the country.
