    Street scene: Shopping arcades

    Evora is a hot and dry city, and walking around may become hard. The city's centre is prepared to it, hiding most of the small stores under the shade of very convenient and good looking arcades.

    This puts people a little out of sight, giving the city a tranquility that... it's real, but not that much.

    Street scene: Av. 5 de Outubro

    Avenida 5 de Outubro is, as I mentioned on my Must See Activities tip, a pedestrian’s streets with a wide choice concerning arts craft and souvenirs shops. Here you will find plenty of shops selling varied products, but the most common are: colourful pottery, iron works and some utensils made with cork, a typical product from Alentejo region. Also you will find replicas of Portuguese windows, doors and houses, made in small size to hang on walls. Apart from these, the usual souvenirs: postcards, t-shirts, fridge magnets and so on. I have never bought anything on this street, but I assume that, being so touristy and near Évora’s main attractions (Cathedral, Roman Temple and Giraldo square) prices may be higher than in some other shops across the city and more distant from touristy routes.
