Evora Peacocks

We start our walking tour of the city of EVORA.
Topped by an imposing cathedral, Évora is on sloping hill out of the huge Alentejo plains. A walled city classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city, with its narrow streets of Moorish origin contrasting with squares full of light. Évora was conquered by the Romans in 59 BC, named as Liberalitas Julia. After the Portuguese reconquest in the 12th century, an urban area grew beyond the city walls. The city was very important for several Portuguese kings of the first and second dynasties. During this period, all of it was endowed with various palaces and monuments, particularly during the reigns of King John II and Manuel (15th and 16th centuries).

We visit the following monuments:
Historic center with medieval white streets.
Royal Palace (exterior only visit. The interior is used for temporary exhibitions).
City Garden
St. Francis Church and Chapel of Bones
Geraldo Square
Gothic cathedral of the XIII century
Roman temple from the first century AD

Jaime in the 16th century. It is a unique monument within Portuguese military architecture.
