Évora

Often referred to as an open-air museum, Evora is truly special.

Beeing a native educated tour guide knowing Évora inside out I am able to provide a unique experience by taking you not only to the famous touristic sites but also to some unknown parts of Évora not mentioned in the guide books.

This private walking tour includes the visits of the Roman Diana Temple, the Cathedral, the St. Francis Church with the Bone's Chapel, the Historical University, the Local Market and the famous Cork products (bags, shoes, wallets, a. o).

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.

Visit to the historical University founded on the 1st. of November 1559 and the local market. Don't miss the famous unique cork products.

*Please note that on Sundays and national holidays some visiting sites may be closed. Tour is customisable, please inquire

A full experience on history and culture awaits!
