Made by the famous architect Alvaro Siza Veira, its has this arabish look. Go for a walk. Be careful cos some of the houses are habited by gipsies that some times could be not very friendly. Malagueira has 1 or 2 bad areas, the one near the Cruz da Picada district. Even tough don't worry.
Malagueira was first projected to build in a region in Tunisia. They end up building the neighbourhood both in Tunisia and here in Evora. Architect Alvaro Siza Vieira.
