Private Tour to Evora and Monsaraz from Lisbon

Évora, the Pearl of the Alentejo!

Known as the Museum-City, Évora stands out for its rich historical heritage and university tradition. It stands beautiful and charming in the heart of the Alentejo region. In addition to being one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in Portugal, it is marked by the incomparable hospitality of its people.

Go back in time and visit the 1st century Roman Temple, the Evora Cathedral, the São Francisco Church that houses the chilling Chapel of Bones. Find out what gave the city the UNESCO World Heritage status. Enjoy free time for lunch and then head to Monsaraz Castle. A village surrounded by walls, which perpetuated the medieval atmosphere of its streets that accentuate a unique sensation as if Monsaraz remained frozen in time.

It dates from the 1st century and is built at the dominant point of the acropolis, in the city forum. It is one of the best preserved Roman temples in the Iberian Peninsula. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is certainly the oldest of all monuments in Évora

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Cathedral of Evora (Se Catedral de Evora), Largo do Marques de Marialva, Evora 7000-809 Portugal

    The largest medieval cathedral in Portugal, its construction started in 1186, on the foundations of an Arab mosque, is an example of the transition from Romanesque to Gothic style. Declared a National Monument in 1910.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Praca do Giraldo, Evora 7000-508 Portugal

    This site was the scene of numerous autos-da-fé (ritual of public penance), which took place during the period of the Inquisition. It has a rectangular shape. The houses that surround it are white and have medieval arches.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Igreja de Sao Francisco, Praca 1 de Maio, Evora 7000-656 Portugal

    Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, in Manueline-Mudejar and Renaissance style, to replace an earlier Gothic temple, of which there are still some remnants. It was adjacent to the Royal Palace, and seen as a Royal Church therefore important ceremonies were held there such as the marriage of Prince Afonso to Isabel of Castilla in 1490.
    The interior has a single nave, rectangular in shape and in the form of a Latin cross, emphasizing the Baroque high-altar and the Third Order of Saint Francis Chapel. The greatest popular curiosity resides in the Bones Chapel, of three naves completely covered in human bones (17th century).

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Capela dos Ossos, Praca 1 de Maio, Evora 7000-650 Portugal

    Be impressed by one of the most sinister monuments in Portugal: The Chapel of Bones built in the 17th century. Upon entering, note the ominous warning, intended for visitors to meditate on the ephemeral of life: "We bones that here are, for yours await". Built by three naves, the chapel is covered with bones and skulls from 5000 skeletons from church and convent cemeteries throughout the city.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Monsaraz Castle and Walls, Largo do Castelo, Monsaraz 7200-175 Portugal

    Village surrounded by walls, which perpetuate the medieval air, its streets accentuate a singular atmosphere as if Monsaraz remained frozen in time.
    Upon arriving in Monsaraz you will find a magnificent architectural complex protected by the medieval wall built in the reigns of D. Afonso III (13th century) and D. Dinis (14th century).
    For those who venture to discover narrow streets, sunny nooks and crannies or high points like the Belfry and the Torre das Feiticeiras (The Tower of the Witches) , one of the five towers of this military monument, the sensation of wonder and surprise caused by the magnificent and traditional landscape is certain, and now enriched by the beauty of the Great Lake of the Alqueva Dam.
