A private half day walking tour: a time journey from BC to our present days


Enjoy a private walking guided tour through the historical center of Évora, classified by UNESCO as world heritage site since 1986: a true open air museum! We will have the incredible opportunity to visit, learn and understand historical and cultural facts and details of impressive monuments. Among many others, in a time journey from BC to our present days: the 1st century "Roman Temple", the 2nd century "Roman Thermal Baths", the vestiges of the 3rd century "Roman Wall", the 14th century defensive "Wall" that still embraces the entire historical center of the city. From the 16th century, when Évora was considered the second most importante city of the kingdom of Portugal, we will contemplate and learn about some of the most outstanding monuments: the "San Francisco Curch", the "D. Manuel Palace", the "Aqueduct", the "Giraldo Square" and the "Inquisition Palace", all greatly contributed to this century being considered the golden period of Évora.
