Re: Bus Between Seville and Evora?

Possibly the one from Seville to Lisbon stops at Evora but if not, you can take the Alsa bus to Faro (http://thomasallen.home.sapo.pt/travel/001.htm) and change there for a bus to Evora (Mundial Turismo or Eva Transportes S.A., tel: +351 289 899 760):
Faro-Évora (+/- €12)

Owner of said webpage here.

No, there is no direct bus Seville - Evora. Take a bus from Seville to Faro and change there for a bus to Evora as indicated above.

You will need separate tickets for each leg of the journey, so allow time at Faro to buy your next ticket, as the ticket office there is a madhouse at the best of times.

You can also reserve that section on line at www.rede-expressos.pt but the site is only in Portuguese.

Good news for present and future readers is that the EVA/DAMAS service between Seville, Faro and Lagos is running at weekends through the winter, not just on weekdays as in previous years.

Travel Tips for Évora

flowers

by arasnosliw

I traveled to Évora on one of the hottest days of the year, mid-August, when temperatures rose in the Alentejo over 110 degrees F. I was shocked to see that even amidst the dry, desert climate, flowers still abounded. There are beautiful pink geraniums that line every street of the city, adding a great contrast to the whitewashed walls of the buildings.

Tourism Office

by micas_pt

Évora Tourism Office is situated on Giraldo’s square, it is very easy to find – while facing the church, the Information Centre is located on your left side, across the taxi stop. The helpful staff will provide you a free map of the city with main Must See, briefly described on the back in 3 languages: Portuguese, English and French. There are also guides and books about the area on sale here.

Bougainvillea Blossoms

by Bwana_Brown

OK, let's face it - I love Bougainvillea wherever I see them. It must be a throwback to my Zambian and Papua New Guinea days where these things grew like crazy! When I see the colourful blossoms of this plant, I know that I have once again reached somewhere on this planet that is beyond the reach of Canadian blizzards!

These woody and thorn-armoured evergreen vines (native to South America) are named after a Frenchman, Louis Antoine de Bougainville who spotted them while sailing around the world in 1767. They typically grow by sprawling across any surface that will support them, usually adorning walls with a magnificent display of leaves and beautiful blossoms. But they can also grow by themselves as very colourful stand-alone bushes, with their blossoms coming in many different hues.

This particular vine was growing along the inner walls of the Jardim do Paco restaurant as we sat there in the shade enjoying our cool drinks on a hot afternoon in Evora! The great thing about Portugal is that almost every city, town or village has these growing in various decorative ways!
