Evora is one of Portugal’s most beautifully preserved medieval towns. City is situated in the heart of the arid Alentejo region of central Portugal. Historically, Evora was an important trading and religious centre, and this is reflected by the many tourists attractions which can be discovered within the city walls. Cathedrals, churches, aqueducts and ancient castle walls all serve to create the feeling that Évora is a living, breathing museum to Portugal’s rich past. And yet, as a university city, Évora, Portugal, is also a window to the country’s exciting future.
