Because it’s winter in Europe and we need to change our itinerary a bit, Évora, the capital of the Alentejo region is the most suitable city to visit.
With its Moorish influence, streets are filled with short white-washed buildings with mustard-yellow trim, Évora has very well-preserved old town centre, enclosed by medieval walls, and a large number of monuments dating from various historical periods.
I visited the Roman Temple, also referred as the Temple of Diana. It was dedicated to the cult of Emperor Augustus and today it’s Évora’s most famous landmark.
Another important landmark to visit in Évora is the Saint Francis Church that includes several chapels decorated in Baroque style, including the Chapel of Bones, small but totally covered with human bones, skulls, femurs, just see for yourself!
In order to get a great aerial view of Évora, you can climb the towers of the Se, the cathedral, and walk around on top.
If you visit Évora I recommend you to have lunch or even diner at Degust’AR Restaurant. Which I recently wrote a review about.
