  • Located in a less visited part of town, but it's worth the walk over there. Nice place, but with little charms or alternatives to cool off, unless the source itself (I hope of clean water). Worth the visit.

  • Especially aesthetic monument. Inaugurated in 1556 she saw the day through the great aqueduct to carry water to the city (aqueduct da Água de Prata).

  • The source, entirely made in white marble in the 16th century, is one of the most famous Renaissance sources of Evora. Its silhouette shaped sphere topped with a flag is one of the icons of the city. The registration written around the large sphere reporduce the 114.8 Psalm of the Bible: QVI CONVERTIT PETRAM IN STAGNA AQVARVM ET RVPEM IN FONTES AQVARVM ANNO 1556.

Where to stay in Evora

Take advantage of Evora's array of ancient and historical sites by staying in one of the many mid-range hotels located within its medieval core. Thanks to a mix of Roman, Moorish, and later European buildings, the entire center is listed as a World Heritage Site, so this area provides a great base for sightseeing by foot. To save a little on accommodations, you can also check into one of the hostels in town, most of which are located in the city center or on its winding residential streets that branch off from the main squares. These usually have shared, dorm-style rooms, but can get you right in the midst of the action at a very low cost.
