Évora Tours

70 Reviews
Évora
From Roman ruins to royal palaces and a medieval chapel decorated with skulls and bones, the town of Évora is one of Portugal’s most fascinating destinations. There’s a lot to see here for visitors interested in European history, and the surrounding landscape dotted with vineyards is worth visiting, too.
 
The Basics
Human history in Évora dates back to 4,000 BC—that’s more than 6,000 years. In the millennia since, Évora has played host to Celts, Romans, and Moors, before Portugal claimed it in the Middle Ages, with every era leaving its marks on the city.
 
The historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and visitors can see well-preserved ruins of a Roman temple, the Gothic Praça do Giraldo square, and, of course, the macabre Chapel of Bones (Capela dos Ossos). This wealth of history makes Évora a popular stop for day tours from nearby Lisbon.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Situated in the central Alentejo region, Évora can be very hot, so plan to wear a hat and sunscreen, if you’re visiting in the summer months.
  • There’s a lot to see in the city, so bank on spending at least half a day here.
  • Keep an eye out for the colorful Azulejo tiles that decorate many buildings in town.
How to Get There
Évora is reachable by train, bus, or guided tour with transport provided. Trains leave daily from Lisbon’s Oriente station. Visitors can also arrive to Évora by car.
 
When to Get There
Évora welcomes visitors year-round and has hot summers and dry, mild winters. Many people visit in spring when daily temperatures are at their most pleasant.
 
Taste Local Alentejo Wines
Besides the historic city of Évora, the Alentejo is famous for its wine and olive production. Taking a tour to try the local wines at family-run vineyards is a popular activity, and you can always pick up a couple of bottles to take home as a souvenir of the region.
