Actually so much to see in Evora. Living History. Evora is a unique World Heritage Site. A pleasant three hour drive from the Algarve, through the beautiful Alentejo region.
Until the end of the 19 Century there were 40 Palaces of Royal families in Evora within the city walls.
Today with a population of 8000 within the old walls there are still 30 Palaces.
The total population of the entire city is 50,000.
Many Palaces can be visited by private tours that you book in advance over the Internet.
The best thing to do on your first day is to to show up in front of the tourist office at 10am and take the 2 hour walking tour. For 15€ this is a real bargain. Our guide Marie Perreira could answer all our questions and had a vast knowledge of history and social life of Evora.
