A Good Guide Book is Worth It

by Bwana_Brown

Months before we went to Portugal, we decided that we needed a decent travel guide to help us understand this completely foreign country. Based on previous travel experiences, the internet is great for a 'quick hit' if you need information. However, you cannot beat a good book if you want information in great detail and at your fingertips at all times!

We went to the local bookstore and checked out Fodors, Lonely Planet and all the others but, when it came right down to it, I could not resist the significantly more expensive (US$28) DK Eyewitness Travel Guide. It is a 480-page full-colour book with detailed maps, photos and information, yet it is only the size of a paperback novel! Without the colour in a guide, you miss so much. Let me tell you that it was worth every penny. It described the history of Portugal and its rulers, its architecture, customs, foods and the most minute details on each of its areas. The book described the recommended road tours in each area of the country and provided maps showing and describing the attractions in every part of the country.

We took it with us everywhere, even when waiting for a meal so we could either plan our next move or read up on the useful Portugese phrases and translations of menu items!

In short, get one!

Cromeleque dos Almendres 1

by johnsakura

The Megalithic enclosure of Almendres, one of the first public monuments in the human history, comprises the largest group of menhirs to have been erected on the Iberia Peninsula, and one of the most important in Europe.
This megalithic monument originally consisted of more than a hundred monoliths. Recet escavations have made possible the detection of various phases of construction throughout the Neolithic period (the 5th to the 4th millennia BC) to the point where it aquired an appearence similar to that which is found today.
There are 92 menhirs, with different shapes and dimensions, some small, rudely shaped blocks, others of greater size, which have given the place the name of Alto das Pedras Talhas.
They form 2 enclosures erected in different, distinct eras, geminated, and aligned to accord with the equinoxes. 10 of the monoliths are decorated, exhibitiong reliefs or engravings, with 4 of them just discernibly displaying dimple marks.
It was a monument which had religious functions and was problably also a primitive astronomical observatory.

Patio de Salema 2

by johnsakura

This is the other side of Patio de Salema. You can see that house that is exactly in front of Saint Peter's Palace. There's used to live some governors long time ago in this area. The Palace (not on the picture, its after that arch)is now taken by the city hall department of youth and sport). This is a passage way to go from the Portas de Moura district to the BAR UE, the university bar, always with music and full of drunk people inside during university breaks and classes. Everynight is night to go out in Evora. Due to its smallness, Evora lacks of places to go out at night. I mean theres plenty if you're comming has a visitor, but now imagine a student passing 4, 5 years here and the variety is not much, that may consist a problem. Another thing is that many people come from portugeuse NOrth and South countryside, away from the parents (everywere in the world is like this I bet), and they get here full of parties, concerts and nightlife and they just get lost and go parting all night long forgetting the main reason of comming to the town: classes. Evora is on the top ranking of portuguese universities for paring and drinking, missing classes and money spent for student parties and concerts and activity.

An Orange Surprise

by Bwana_Brown

After a long day's drive north from the southern Algarve coast, followed by a hot afternoon walking the busy streets of Evora, my wife and I were enjoying a relaxing sitdown in our cool ground floor room at the Pensao Graca. We only heard the slightest noise at one of our open windows and, by the time we checked to see what it was, we simply found two fresh oranges sitting there on the ledge!

The Graca has a large walled back garden, with several orange trees growing in full splendor. We can only surmise that one of the staff had walked by and placed some fresh produce on our window sill as a 'Welcome' sign.

We were very impressed with this gesture, and made sure to take these oranges with us for the next part of our trip - to Monsaraz the next day! I had visions of another "out of this world" orange such as I had eaten during our stay in Aljezur on the Algarve!
