One of Portugal’s most fascinating destinations, Evora is a city full of historic national treasures that keep any visitor intrigued. From the Roman ruins of the Templo de Diana (Temple of Diana) featuring 14 original Corinthian columns, to the Capela dos Ossos (Bones of Chapel), which is completely decorated with human bones, Evora contains corner to corner historical encounters.

For a full-on educational experience on the history of this tremendous city, be sure to spend some time in the Historic Center of Evora, where you can discover ancient megaliths dating back to as far as 4000 BC, while puzzling together Evora’s diverse and immense background.

After visiting the Historic Center, take a second look around the city’s landmarks and architecture. You won’t be surprised to see that for such a small place, there is a wide array of buildings and designs from the renaissance, baroque, gothic, roman, and other eras.

Practical Info

Located in Southern Portugal, Evora is a notably hot city, so be sure when visiting that you bring plenty of water and closely watch weather advisories. About 87 miles away from Lisbon, the best way to reach the city is by car, although if that is not an option you prefer, you can just as easily take the Intercity train or the express bus offered by Rede expressos out of Lisbon.
