Private Tour | Our tours are always private - just you and our guide/driver.

After arrival in Evora, we start at the city center. Évora was taken from the moors by Geraldo'' Sem Medo'' no fear. In 1166 in the Middle Ages became one of the most prosperous cities of the kingdom, especially during the Avis Dynasty (1385-1580)

We will continue our tour visiting the Temple of Diana. It is a corinthian style temple, built in the early first century DC. This is what remains of the Évora city forum and was dedicated to the imperial cult, contrary to what comes to us by popular tradition, which identified him as being dedicated to Diana, Roman goddess of hunting.

Then we left to the Chapel of Bones. It is a chapel of S. Francisco church whose walls are all lined with human bones
