What to Visit
Évora has more then 300 classified monuments. Our city is roman and has about 2.000 years. Roman, Visigoths and Moorish were established here. In 1165 the city became christian (is was also during the Visigoth occupation). Évora reached its apogee in the end of the XV and during the XVI centuries.

Since the reactivation of the University in 1973, the night life in Évora have been more active. Although there’s a lot of places for students, there are also bars for the locals.

Évora is also known as the city museum. All the historic center of our beloved is classified as World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, so everything inside walls is considered a “museum”. But from all the museum in the city we can suggest, the Évora Museum, the Cadaval House Museum, the museum inside the Cathedral, the Handcrafts and Design Museum, Contemporary Art Museum of the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation and the Megalithic Interpretation Center.
We believe that, for those who visit us, the gastronomic experience is very important. Évora offers you many restaurants. Most are traditional gastronomy and some are specialized, in black pork, wines, codfish, seafood, buffet style or just petiscos (portuguese word for tapas). Ask our drivers e get some suggestions according to your interests. However we always have our preferences, always local style. For a Portuguese a meal is a ritual.
