What you can expect

Évora is the capital of Alentejo. Learn why this evergreen-surrounded city is called City Museum. Visit one of the oldest cromleches in Europe, explore a Gothic church and its impressive Bones Chapel, and see the Roman Temple of Évora before ending with a taste of local olive oil.

Join a small-group tour and venture to the Portuguese countryside. As you drive towards Évora admire the beautiful emerald country landscapes and pass by quaint villages. Hear about Évora's well-preserved historical centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986, and admire its stunning monuments. You soon realise why Évora is still called City Museum as you discover the notable Roman Temple of Évora from the 1st century AD.

Your guide takes you to the impressive site of the Cromlech of the Almendres, one of the oldest collections of monolith stones in Europe, dating back more than 7,000 years. Admire the prehistoric stone circle with 95 structures, and don’t forget to snap a photo at this truly historic and fascinating site.

After, head to S.Francisco Church, a mesmerising architectural building that mixes gothic, Mudejar, and Manueline styles. Step inside the interesting Bones Chapel, gaze at the human skulls, and hear about its construction by monks to portray the brevity of life.

Pass by D. Manuel King Palace and move towards the largest gothic church in the country, the Cathedral of Évora, from the 14th century. After some free time to explore the city, end with a tasting of local olive oil before returning to Lisbon.
