Without any doubt Evora is one of the most beautiful and wonderful places in the whole Portugal. There are countless historical monuments in this town, especially in its well-preserved old part. Probably that’s why it was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. It is considered to be one of the Network of the Most Ancient European Towns. The moment you finally see it, you will instantly understand why it is so special and why it attracts so many tourists and travelers from all over the world. There are lots of perfectly preserved ancient edifices which date back to the times of the great Roman Empire. All these buildings and monuments are carefully kept and they don’t conflict with the modern infrastructure of the town. It gives a unique opportunity to imagine how things were centuries and even millennia ago.
This tour is undoubtedly as popular as any of the private tours in Lisbon.
At first I will pick you up from your hotel and we will drive through a very lovely region of Alentejo, which is widely known due to its breath-taking landscapes. As soon as we reach Evora, we will start our tour right from the historical center of the town. You will be amazed at the unique atmosphere of history and mystery, which are clearly felt in all the corners of Evora. We will definitely visit the church of St. Francis (Igreja de Sao Francisco), which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the town. This church is so famous due to its mournful Chapel of the Bones (Capela dos Ossos).
As it is clear from the name, the chapel is actually decorated with human skulls and bones. These are the bones of the monks that used to serve here, and the message of such decoration is the transition of life. But we will leave the church of St. Francis because there are so many other places to discover in lovely Evora. We will also visit the Giraldo Square, ancient Roman Diana Temple, Christian Cathedral (Cathedral of Evora), and many other ones.
We will leave Évora and drive to Estremoz, known as the capital of marble in Portugal.
A medieval village with it's well preserved fortress on top of a hill where we will enjoy the breathtaking views to the landscape.
Back to Lisbon.
As your private guide in Lisbon I will be assisting you during the tour.
