Évora, the museum city



Évora is a true museum city and a passion of Liscovery Tours. Surrounded by walls, we find there more than 20 centuries of history, which earn it the classification of World Heritage.


Celts, Visigoths, Romans and Muslims were some of the people who left their mark in this city, which is also the capital of Alentejo, the region with the warmest climate in Portugal.


To visit Évora is to go back to the memories of the Roman occupation, to go through the Muslim heritage in its labyrinthine streets, to admire the monumental heritage of medieval times and to live with a cultural richness that is reflected in the gastronomy, in the local traditions and in the sympathy of the population.


Évora has been inhabited since the 2nd century BC. During the Middle Ages, it was royal residence for long periods of time and gained prestige in the 16th century when it was elevated to an ecclesiastical city.
