    Beautiful streets, Evora, PT

    Compared to many of the towns that I have visited during my roadtrip around the Southern part of Portugal Evora was a quite large and busy town. Nevertheless it has a cosy charm that makes it a fun thing to walk through the streets of town. Many houses were partly colored yellow which fits perfectly with the yellow streetsigns carrying the streetnames. Some of them were even made of azulejos (tiles).

    Roman Elements in Evora's Streets (Porta Nova)

    Roman Arches Frame This Evora Street

    As you walk around Evora, you will be amazed not only at the Roman elements still standing, but more impressively, how the elements have been incorporated into the modern infrastructure of today's city. The Roman gate built into this street corner is an excellent example.

    Av. 5 de Outubro

    Connecting the Cathedral and Giraldo square, there is a pedestrians’ street called Avenida 5 de Outubro. Here, you will find loads of shops selling art crafts – pottery, products made of cork, iron works and many other. Besides arts craft, this street also shows some nice examples of architecture. While walking across this street, look up and notice the windows and the flowerpots. Also, don’t forget to look at the narrow and winding side streets and some nice flowered backyards.

    The cities in this area have those crooked alleys of whitewashed walls and cobblestones. You won't want to leave from here!
