Évora, a Journey Through Centuries

Welcome to Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage hidden gem nestled in the picturesque Alentejo region of Portugal


Évora invites you to embark on a journey of discovery, where every cobblestone street, ancient monument, and culinary delight tells a story of centuries past. With its timeless beauty and warm hospitality, Évora promises an unforgettable experience that will leave you longing to return again and again


Évora's history is a fascinating journey through millennia of civilization. Originally known as Ebora in Roman times, it flourished as a vital administrative and commercial center, as evidenced by the remarkable Roman Temple of Évora

Under Moorish rule in the 8th century, Évora became Yeborah and thrived as a center of learning and culture, leaving behind architectural wonders like the city walls and the Moorish Quarter

The city's Christian reconquest in the 12th century marked a new era, establishing Évora as a stronghold of Christianity and a seat of power for Portugal. Magnificent Gothic cathedrals, like the Sé Cathedral of Évora, emerged during this time

During the Age of Discoveries, Évora experienced prosperity, attracting scholars, artists, and explorers. The founding of the University of Évora in 1559 contributed to its intellectual prestige
