The tour will start with a transfer from Lisbon to Evora, approximately 2 hours. Evora is famous for its rich cultural heritage and history ageing since the Romans. Last but not least you will get to try out some of the area's finest wines.

What to expect?

Begin the tour at Giraldo Square, the living center of Évora, full of architectural styles, from Moorish arches lined up in the Square, to the fountains of the Renaissance and the Gothic church of São Francisco. Enjoy some free time to taste a regional sweet.

Then head to one of the major landmarks in Portugal, the Roman temple, also known as the Temple of Diana. Its powerful front with 14 columns in well- preserved granite astonishes those who see it for the first time. Next, you can explore the Bones Chapel if you wish. For some people, it is a dark place, for others a fascinating space consisting of hundreds of skulls and skeletons from about 5000 monks of the sixteenth century. There are also two intact corpses exposed in the chapel, so it is not a visit for sensitive people.

At lunchtime, dine in one of the best Evora restaurants. Then go to the Cathedral of Evora, a Roman-Gothic church from the XIII century where you can climb the tower and get a breathtaking view of the city and the fields surrounding it.

With its unique climate conditions, the vineyards of the region produce some of the best Portuguese wines. You will go to a farm where you can taste the best Alentejo has to offer. On the way back to Lisbon stop in Arraiolos and marvel at its magnificent castle wall and the famous carpets of Arraiolos. You can see firsthand how they are manually produced and grab yourself a souvenir.
