Visit to Évora and some of the city's monuments on this interesting full-day tour.
What to Expect
Spend a full-day on a private tour to Évora and Estremoz. In Évora, you will have enough time to walk in its historical center and feel the atmosphere of this town. After reaching the walled city, your tour guide will invite you to visit the enigmatic church of St. Francis and its Chapel of the Bones. The tour will continue up the narrow streets of the old town until you reach Giraldo square where the Inquisition once had its headquarters.
After this intensive cultural morning, it will be time to enjoy the pleasures of one of the most creative cuisines of Portugal in some of the local "alentejano" restaurants that your guide will help you choose. What this tour will offer you above all is tranquility and a sample of the real Portugal, often hidden in the crowded tours.
You will also have time to explore the millenium old Roman Temple and get a glimpse of the 12th century cathedral. In the already distant 16th century, Évora thrived with culture and tradition as much as it still does today. During a short visit to the century old university courtyard you will understand why Évora was once the second most important city of Portugal. You will also visit Extremoz, a typical Alentejo village with its Saint Isabel Monastery now a boutique hotel.
