The secrets of this world heritage site with your local private guide.
The city of Evora is one of Portugal's finest, especially if you are visiting the country with aspirations of seeing some intriguing historical sights. Evora Portugal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks largely in part to its old town center and its Roman, medieval era, and seventeenth century walls. You'll also find a Roman Temple here, not to mention an abundance of beautiful sixteenth and seventeenth century homes. Often referred to as an open-air museum, Evora is truly special.
Highlights of our visit:
♦ Roman Diana Temple
♦ St. Francis Church and the Bone's Chapel
♦ Historical University
♦ Local Market
♦ Cork products(bags, shoes, wallets, a. o)
♦ Private tour
*Please note that on Sundays and national holidays some visiting sites may be closed.
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. Cathedrals are aplenty in Portugal, but few are more significant than the Cathedral of Evora when it comes to the Gothic style.
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. Attractive townhouses with intricate wrought-iron balconies adorn the square.
Visit to the historical University founded on the 1st. of November 1559 and the local market. Don't miss the famous unique cork products. . .

Amazing! We had such an incredible tour of Evora. Paulo was energetic, passionate, extremely knowledgeable. We enjoyed our time immensely. He was excited to show us Evora and his enthusiasm was contagious! Our boys are teenagers and they were enthralled by his descriptions and stories. He is genuine and kind. He hurt his knee earlier that morning helping someone but still showed up, lucky for us! We wish he could come with us through Portugal. Lovely time and highly highly recommend!
