Evora to Badajoz by bus

by allaynew

Does anyone know how to get from Evora to Badajoz by bus? I am looking at travelling this route in April 2008 but I can't find information on bus timetables? Can anyone assist with information? I have emailed the Evora Tourist Office but have not had a reply. It may have something to do with my dodgy Portugese language skills!

Thank you.

Hi!

Intercentro (or Intersul lol) has two daily all year round bus connections from Lisbon-Madrid/Barcelona with stops in Évora and Badajoz.
The buses leave from Elvas at 11h15 or 22h45 and arrive in Badajoz respectively at 13h45 or 01h45.
The one way ticket costs 16€ (adults) or 14€ (young people under 26).

Of course that they still may change the timetables for 2008.

You can check all this info on http://www.intercentro.pt/.

Plus you need to book your ticket at least 3 days before travelling.
Send an e-mail to reserva@intercentro.pt to know about the booking.

Have a nice trip!

Travel Tips for Évora

Evora is Located HERE

by Bwana_Brown

After finishing our very enjoyable excursion in the southwest corner of Portugal in the Algarve, we headed north for Evora. It was a long but interesting drive on great highways (see my 'Algarve' page for details) on a beautiful day.

Evora is situated not too far from the Spanish border and is about 1/3rd of the way up from the southern beaches of the Algarve.

Portas de Moura

by johnsakura

oh, Portas de Moura...I just love it so badly! The fountain looks so good along with the cathedral ahead. This square has many old things to look at. It has an old convent, two houses with Manueline Period (Late portuguese gothic period) windows. You can check one of the windows in my Evora's travelogue "animals in evora". More important buildings on this Portas de Moura Sqaure is the Court, and justice place to make Id's and other legal documents. You also have the University Art Department for Music and Drama. So its very nice cos while you sit on the fountain, you can notice the diference between students from drama and from sociology and language courses that is in another building called Cordovil Palace. Basicallyt the university takes many palaces here in Evora. The university pays 600 thousand euros for renting the space of the Carmo convent from the drama and music department... a lots of money that could be used in other university plans and facilities outside castle walls like the Visual Arts department is doing improving and rebuilding and old factory giving very nice space and conditions to art students to work.

Back part of Cathedral from Terrace 1

by johnsakura

The Évora Cathedral is the largest medieval Cathedral in the country. Its original plan, still relating to the Romanesque schemes, resembles the models adopted at the Coimbra and Lisbon Cathedrals. These models were carried out in a distinct way in the Évora Cathedral because of its late construction (c.1280-1340) that placed the building site in direct contact with the Gothic conceptions, then becoming dominant in Portugal.

Lamp in Rua das Alcançarias

by johnsakura

ah. you could make a book only about lamps in Evora. Actually about almost every cit in Portugal. Evora has wonderful lamps, comming from the renaissance period (adapted to eletric of course) and many from 18, 19 and debut of 20th century. In winter time when fog is covering all the city, you can stare amazed to the old buildings lighten by this gothic and medieval ambiance. Wonderful atmosphere, great to make some nice pictures indeed. If you actually want a good pic tip, just go to the back part of the cathedral at wintertime during night (more or less midnight) and just across the arch from the mueum you'll look up and see one of the cathedral's window iluminated by inside along with the fog...oh yeah, thats a nice spectacle.:
Just follow the street that goes from the Largo Conde de Vila Flor where the roman temple is, to the back part of the cathedral heading the Largo de Sao Miguel.

Orange Trees

by micas_pt

All over Alentejo region, and also in Évora, you will find orange trees in the streets and backyards. Being a bigger city, it is not that frequent any more to find the orange trees on Évora’s streets, but you will find plenty on private houses and backyards. Even on restaurants and open air cafes you will notice them, as is the case of this one on my photo – it is situated in Restaurant dos Lóios (inside Convent of Lóios) where there is a pleasant garden with open air tables in the shadow of these and other trees.
