  • Évora is enchanting and its historic center is a jewel that stayed in time. The city inside a wall is very special. There are several shops, restaurants and "Cantinhos" that deserve a good walk and contemplation.

  • One of the most beautiful cities in Portugal, rich with an exceptional heritage preserved and protected from several historical eras. But the high tourist influx has a negative impact: the prices are more expensive: the natives are not very ' ' hospitable ' ': do not ask them for information in French on the street, usually they ignore you. A hint: do not Park ' ' Intra-Muros ' ' because the old town is on foot, most of the monuments being concentrated in the Center. For my part, I chose the parking (free) South of the city: ' ' Rossio de Sao Bras ' ' (1000 places... but very few shadings and uncoated soil (muddy terrain if rain). From the central parking axis (statue) go straight towards the city along the municipal park (on the left) to climb the ' ' Rua de la Républica ' ' which takes you to the ' ' Praça do Giraldo ' ' and the tourist office. At the tourist office, ask for the city plan (in French) very useful for the visit. Count 600m from the parking lot at the central square. Good visit
