stay in Evora or outside?

by piglet44

we are coming by car from Castelo de Vide and will visit sites of Evora for 2 days in July. Should we stay in Evora itself or base ourselves somewhere nearby (Moura? Estremoz?) we dont want a fancy poussada ,just a nice clean little residencial.

It seems that most of the places within the city are very expensive, and the ones that arent seem to have bad reviews on here. Also is parking going to be a problem inside the city? thanks all.

Hi Ruthi,

When we visited Evora we stayed in the Ibis hotel, and were satisfied:

It's right outside the old city wall, modern, inexpensive, ample parking, 3 min walk to the beautiful old city within the walls.

It's located just outside the Old City walls, very convenient access to the Old City; it's modern, inexpensive and has ample parking.

Good luck and enjoy,

thanks Ilan. I am toying with the idea of a more rural stay or maybe Estremoz or a nearby village. how was Seder night?

Hi,

parking within the walls of Evora is very difficult. But you can leave you car just outside the walls and walk a little. There's plenty of parking space.

As for a place to stay nearby, here's some suggestions:

Estremoz: "Monte da Fazenda" : http://www.lifecooler.com/portugal/alojamento/MontedaFazenda (I haven't stayed there though)

If you like to stay in Vila Viçosa (and have a chance to visit the beautiful palace and carriage museum) consider this hotel: Hotel Solar Dos Mascarenhas. It's really nice, I've stayed on this one.

Alentejo Wine

by evilprebil

Alentejo wine is nothing spectacular, but it is a great wine to drink. I would have to say it's equivalent to getting 'house wine'. For me that means especially tasty for a low price. The wines are starting to develop more, but there isn't much depth to them. They are incredibly tasty for the price and it is the up an coming region in Portugal.

Ermida de S. Braz

by johnsakura

This is a perfect spot to watch portuguese late gothic style of mudejar. Portuguese late gothic style had to branches: mudejar with arab influences which also appeard in southern Spain of course, and the Portuguese Manuelino, that comes after the name of the King in the Discoveries times.

I took the picture from the part you ca't really see any surrounding buildings, i mean like churches inside the city walls usually have building right on the other side of the street. Here on this one you just have a wal on the back part like you can see on the picture and in the front part you this ugly construction of the Hotel D. Fernando...bahh! I didnt get it on the picture. I didnt want to scare you off of actually coming to visit this monument. hehehe In the front part of this chapel there a road that heads to the Rossio art of town. This part is where once per month is held the fair where almost everything can be bought. From clothes to local regional food, groceries, chinese stuff, shoes you just name it. Great experience.

Patio de Salema 1

by johnsakura

The building on the left side of the picture is an old movie theatre closed almost 30 years ago. Never had any renovation after and now is being used by bats only. Its a shame and pity that builing such as these one are treated as garbage and are kept empty with the passing of the years. Evora lacks more cultural things ans spots. In Evora theres a problem with the cinema industry. Everybody doesnt understand why theres only one single movie theatre for the whole city when everyday the roms are full. Isn't this enough to the actual governement come up with a new project to put more that 2 cinema rooms in the town? everyweek you have one of the rooms chaging movie and its always a fresh one, but its not too much. This here is the perfect spot to uild a new teather.
Evora has more than 7000 university students that need more actoin and more cultural that the current one. BY the way the whole city has 45.000 citizens.
On the right side ou have the old recreation association Joaquim Antonio de Aguir where you can play cards, billard, snooker, drink som beers, listening to some concerts, watch some movies with a big movie screen bought by the association that make special mvie programmes every month.

The Black Capes

by VdV

Don't be alarmed if you are stepping out from a restaurant or bar onto one of Evora's small, cobblestoned streets and suddenly you are confronted by a group of black-caped individuals. No, they are not vampires--they are university students.

You will see them all over the city, day and night. I was so intrigued by the capes that I actually found a store that sold these unique school uniforms, and was about to buy one for myself until my friend Angie said, "You're going to bring that home, put it on and say 'I look like an old person trying be Harry Potter!' " O.k. Angie's advice brought me back to my senses, but there is something very dramatic about those black capes!

Throughout Portugal (and other European countries), you can find students wearing these dramatic uniforms. If anything, maybe I will buy a cape on my return visit--they sure look like they keep you warm on cool nights!
