Over two thousand years of History, the second city of the kingdom
Highlights: The historical center of Evora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986. The city was founded by the Celts before the arrival of the Romans. From the Roman presence we can admire in the acropolis the ruins of the Roman Temple dedicated to the worship of the emperor. In the fifth century came the invasions of the Visigoths. In the eighth century the Moorish conquest took place, until the Portuguese conquest in 1165. A monumental city was built where kings and nobility lived for long periods. The city is therefore admired for its artistic and architectural beauty. The fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the Renaissance period, were times of glory and the best artists of the kingdom had their workshops here, as well as the great humanists of Portugal.
