ÉVORA
In the far distant past, the city was occupied by the Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Portuguese in succession, all of whom built walls and many other edifices inside the city. The Portuguese conqueror who scaled the walls defended by the Muslims, beneath a hail of arrows, became a national hero. The most important square in Évora bears the hero’s name. Nowadays it is a prosperous university city that is full of character.


Its historic centre has been classified as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
