Description

From Lisbon, take an exciting journey to the city of Evora, a UNESCO World Heritage. As you drive to Evora, cross a bridge over the Tagus River. Within a few kilometers after crossing this bridge, see wonderful landscapes of rolling hills, lush vineyards, and a myriad of cork oaks and olive groves.

The sight of the beautiful, whitewashed walls surrounding the medieval city of Evora will tell you that you have arrived on your first destination. On your arrival, explore the narrow antiquated streets and stop by some of the city's most prized architectural gems such as the Roman Temple, the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, the Chapel of Bones, the University, the Church of Sao Francisco, Herdade do Esporao, and many more!

The Roman Temple is one of the remaining ruins from the time when the Roman Empire dominated the city. Also known as the Temple of Diana, this particular temple is claimed by several historians to have been used as an execution site and in later years, was used as a slaughterhouse.

Marvel at the timeless Romanesque-Gothic architecture of the Evora Cathedral. Built with rose granite, this cathedral closely resembles the Cathedral of Lisbon. The eye-catching main portal of the Evora Cathedral displays statues of the 12 apostles. These statues are considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Portuguese Gothic sculpture. It is believed that the flags of Vasco da Gama's fleet on his first expedition to the Orient were blessed in this cathedral's first presbytery.

Mysterious and grotesque, the Chapel of Bones is a must-visit for every tourist in Evora. This chapel gained its name through the thousands of human bones of monks stuck to its interior walls. You may find that its white ceilings are covered with death motifs and that two desiccated corpses (one is of a child) hang from ropes). You may also see the Church of Sao Francisco as the Chapel of Bones is located beside this cathedral. As you go along, your guide will tell you the story behind the unique concept behind this interesting chapel.

Another great stop of this tour is at the University of Evora. This 15th century public university boasts of its spacious cloisters, decorative stucco and tiles, impressive façade, and its central courtyard where a humble marble fountain can be found. You may find it amazing how the old classrooms are still being used for lessons.

End this tour with a visit to one of the most historical wine cellars in Portugal, the Herdade do Esporao. During your visit to this impressive wine cellar, get the chance to taste the traditional Setubal muscatel, a type of wine that represents the Setubal Peninsula wine region.
