Evora Half Day Walking Tour
Often referred to as an open-air museum, Evora is truly special. It is one of Portugal’s finest cities if you are looking for some intriguing historical sights.
It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks largely in part to its old town center and its Roman medieval era and seventeenth-century walls. You’ll also find a Roman Temple and an abundance of beautiful XVI and XVII century homes.
The historical treasures in Evora span centuries and you could spend part of the tour admiring the city’s main cathedral built between the years of 1186 and 1204.
While the main cathedral is easily one of the top Evora attractions, it just might be overshadowed by the Templo de Diana, which is one of the best-preserved Roman monuments that you will find anywhere on the Iberian Peninsula.
Fourteen of the original eighteen columns on this renowned relic are still standing, which gives testament to how well built the structure is.
The city’s lively main square, which is known as the Praca do Giraldo, is one of the best places to start an Evora walking tour. Attractive townhouses with intricate wrought-iron balconies adorn the square. You will also visit the historical University founded on the 1st. of November 1559 and the local market.
