Get to know the World Heritage City of Évora, where you can see an incredible collection of historic monuments in one of Europe's most ancient towns. Follow a private guide to see the old narrow streets, a Roman temple, a Gothic cathedral and the nearby traditional village of Arraiolos.

After you leave Lisbon, a drive through the country roads of Alentejo brings you to Évora. Take a walk through the historical centre to get a feel for the atmosphere of the town, which has preserved its traditional character as it developed through the centuries. After you reach the walled city, follow your guide to the Church of St Francis and see the human remains built into the walls of the Chapel of Bones – a powerful message about the transience of life.

The tour continues up the narrow streets to Giraldo Square, which once hosted the headquarters of the Inquisition. You can explore the millennium-old Roman Temple, get a glimpse of the 12th-century cathedral and visit the 16th-century University of Évora, which served as a thriving centre of culture and tradition.

Get some recommendations from your guide to help you choose from the town’s selection of Portuguese cuisine, before your tour continues to the town of Arraiolos, known as the “eternal bride” due to its immaculate white houses framed with blue or yellow stripes. Meet the embroiderers who make the famous Arraiolos carpets, and see the town's legacy of Moorish culture for yourself as you stroll through the streets.
