    Your Evora day trip ends with a return to your Lisbon hotel.

    About Evora
    Évora Day Trip from Lisbon

    Évora is a City-Museum and World Heritage site

    With a very well-preserved historic center, Évora is a World Heritage site since 1986. It is the best example of a city from the golden age of Portugal (16th century), not destroyed by the 1755 earthquake.

    But the history of Évora is very old. Prehistoric even. Throughout the city there are traces of very ancient civilizations: Celts, Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians.

    The Roman Temple is the most famous monument in Evora

    Built on one of the highest points in the city, and 2,000 years old; it is one of the most important historical ruins in Portugal.

    Dedicated to Emperor Augustus, it became a safe in the 14th century and a public butchery until the 19th, when the first archaeological excavations in Portugal were then carried out there.

    The Chapel of Bones is unique in this size in Portugal and rare in Europe

    The striking phrase at the imposing portal leaves no one indifferent: "We bones that are here, for yours we are waiting." Symbol of a Macabre Heritage that dominates mainly the south of Portugal, it is a funerary exhibition space built by the Franciscans in the 17th century.

    Thousands of bones cover the walls and ceiling of this chapel, taken from cemeteries in Évora - find out the meaning with us!

    The 1st stone of Évora Cathedral was laid in 1186

    The early cathedral, of which we have no trace, may well have been an adaptation of the Great Mosque from when Évora was under Islamic rule, not far from where the current cathedral now stands.

    Combination of the Romanesque style with Gothic, the cathedral was consecrated in 1308. It is the largest in the country, with unique artistic elements in Portugal, such as the dome, the sculpted portal and the cloister, the 16th-century organ, and the Grand-chapel (a jewel of the 18th-century Portuguese Baroque style).
