let's go through cork, history and wines!


Just about one hour from Lisbon, there is Évora, located in the biggest Portuguese region - Alentejo - in the South of Portugal. Alentejo is made of plaines where cattle goes around freely and you can see whitewashed houses here and there. Évora is its most important city, with thousands of year old, and here you can visit the roman temple (with almost 2000 years old!!!), its cathedral, the old university and last but not least, the impressive bone's chapel (real human bones!!) inside Saint Francis church. All of the city center is World Heritage Site, by the Unesco. But you will also find a great opportunity to meet our regional handicraft - cork - used not only for bottle stoppers. You'll get surprised! Talking about wine, there's great red wine and great regional dishes (based on meet) and even delicious desserts with centuries old. Come and see for yourself!!!

A Recent Review of this tour

Strongly recommend this tour if you want to do something different from the classic tourists destinations such as Lisbon and Sintra. Evora is a charming, laid back medieval city with lots of interesting historic and cultural spots. We also visited the famous José Maria Fonseca wine cellar and a local tile workshop. Such a perfect day tour! All credit to Gloria!
