What to expect

In the Évora Tour you’ll get to know the deepest Portugal, with magnificent plains filled with Vineyards, Cereals, the Olive Trees from where the famous Portuguese olive oil comes from, and the Cork Trees from where is extracted the very well known Portuguese Cork. The tour starts by visiting the oldest Cromlech in the Southern Europe, with more than 7000 years old: the Cromelech of Almendres (20 / 30 minutes of visit). This is an ensemble of a bit more than 100 stones displayed in a circular shape and lined up with the solstices and equinoxes. It is 2000 years older than Stonehenge!

After this you’ll visit the city of Évora – a World Heritage Site – surrounded by defensive walls from the 14th century, and its Roman Temple (Templo Romano) dated from the 1st century D.C., right in the middle of the city and nearby is the biggest Gothic Cathedral of Portugal (30 / 40 minutes of visit) . You'll have time to wander in the streets of this city if you want to get to know it better and to enjoy the local handcraft. You'll have also free time for lunch to try the local rich gastronomy, based mostly on Pork meat, olive oil, garlic, local herbs and vegetables, bread soups and also cod and fish dishes... (approx. 2 hours).

The Saint Francis Church (Igreja de São Francisco) and the famous Bones Chapel (Capela dos Ossos - approx. 20 minutes) - entrance included - , as also the Palace where Vasco da Gama received the order to discover the Sea Route to India with it's surrounding gardens settled on the highest part of the City Wall (Paço de Dom Manuel). After a great day visiting, nothing better than finish it with a degustation of the regional olive oils from Alentejo, the biggest wine producing region of Portugal.
