Castle walls, Évora
Favorite thing: Évora is one of my favourite cities in Portugal. It is not that far from Lisbon and access is good (highway) so we often use it as a weekend getaway or simply to do a pleasant daytrip with friends, to enjoy fantastic restaurants – food there is great, and so is wine. Évora’s beautiful old city is built inside a castle’s walls and all through the city are still visible remains of consecutive occupancies and conquests, such as Roman and Moorish. The surrounding plains have its own charm and beauty – very green during Spring and dry and hot on Summer months.
