●8 seater minivan for 4 adults+ driver/guide. This tour is also available for more than 4 adults.


On this tour I will invite you to know Évora, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage City, due to its excellent preservation along the centuries.

I can even tell you that little difference exist between walking in Évora today or some centuries ago. This town has been developing itself without losing its primitive characteristics.
That's why it deserved this "prize" from UNESCO.

Once we arrived at Évora we will do a walking tour and visit the highlights of the town. The roman Diana Temple, the Cathedral and the Saint Francis church with the famous bone's chapel.
Free time for lunch in Évora.

After the visit to Évora we will go to Estremoz, the capital of Marble in Portugal. Here you can see a marble quarry and learn how this stone is extracted from the earth.

● I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests, if you are more than 4 or if need pick-up and drop-off outside Lisbon.

Itinerary

After leaving Lisbon, we will drive to Évora by the countryside roads of Alentejo, for a beautiful sightseeing tour by minivan.

In Évora, we will have enough time to walk in its historical centre and "feel" the atmosphere of this town. We will 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 to the Giraldo square where the Inquisition once had its headquarters.

You will also have time to explore the millenium old Roman Temple and have a glimpse at the 12th century cathedral*. In the already distant 16th century Évora thrived with culture and tradition in its university.

After such an 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 I will help you to choose.

We will leave Évora to Estremoz, where you can see a marble quarry and learn how it is extracted.
Small stop in Estremoz.

Back to Lisbon.

A Recent Review of this tour

We used Paulo for four separate days, two for travel and two for full day trips. All these outings were taken care of with the utmost care and courtesy. We greatly enjoyed his knowledge of the country, from culture to agriculture, history, and industry. His pride in Portugal was infectious and we came home wishing we could go back. taking one if his tours is a wonderful way to see parts of Portugal.
