Évora is best visited on foot. Forget the maps and orientations. Just follow your instincts. Discover the alleys and side streets, windows and balconies, the whitewash typical houses and the relaxing atmosphere. There are many places that you must visit, some mentioned in the guide books, some not. Talk to us for recommendations!
By car, on foot, on a bicycle or in a 4WD, those are places that you must visit. We’re proud to have the biggest dolmen in Europe, the oldest cromlech and a huge menhir, all only a few kms from each other. If you want to go further you have many others to visit.
ALDEIA DA TERRA (CLAY VILLAGE)
A visit to Aldeia da Terra, in São Manços street, is recommended. Here we find fun representations of everyday life made in clay with great humor. Go with time because wealth is in the details.
WALKING ALONG THE AQUEDUCT
Dive in the countryside. Discover beautiful houses, small farms, sheep, cows and horses, aromatic herbs, olive and cork trees. With or without guide, just do it.
Bring the kid’s bike (or rent one of ours) and go through the countryside using this non traffic trail, where kids are always safe.
