One of the oldest buildings in the city, the Gothic Se Catedral de Evora forms part of a complex of historical buildings that are on the World Heritage List. This building, the largest medieval cathedral in the country, features two eye-catching towers, each with a different conical spire. The building's cloisters, completed in the 14th century, include marble statues of the four evangelists and a polychrome statue of the Virgin Mary.

  • Portugal travel drives the Evora visits. Évora's Cathedral (Catedral) World Heritage sites in the imposing architecture of the early Gothic (13th century). Up the spiral staircase to first and see the roof. Here is where you can enjoy views, such as the old town of Evora. Secondly, to the corridor. Few visitors, relaxing. To the last, large main hall. Had heard this concert pipe organ was built in the 16th century, in 1584, the heaven tadaya Europe boy mission stayed on with the Panel (Portugal, Japan Japanese and English).

  • The Cathedral is impressive and sits on top of the city of Évora. The ride up the steeple should be made at dusk, as it provides a beautiful view of the city and surroundings.

  • Stunning church established in the mid 1500s. Very medieval! It was 3,50€ to walk about the tower, cloister and actual church portion. The steps to the beautiful vista overlooking miles around Portugal are tight! But the view is 100% worthwhile. The cloister is also lovely and there's a WC as well as a tiny faucet if you want to refill your water. The vending machine doesn't work. It was absolutely quiet and barely anyone was there when we went-- so perfect for pictures and being in your feels. Highly recommend
  • A splendid church in Evora. I enjoyed the fact that it was very quiet and not jammed packed. It is a bit off the beaten path, and is a great addition to an Evora day.
  • The tower offers view of the city of evora, with beautiful altars, I love the “rope” of hanging the lamps especially.
  • One of the most beautiful churches in Portugal. It's fantastic architecture and have a fantastic views on top..
  • When visiting Evora the cathedral is a must.
