Owner description: The city of Evora is world heritage not only for its monuments. Their culture, their streets, whitewashed houses, the latticed balconies, their uneven sidewalks, its Gothic doors and windows, narrow and irregular streets of the Jewish quarter, its whiteness contrasting with the blue sky, its people , traditions and cuisine, among others make Evora is one of the best preserved world heritage cities. Stroll through its elegant medieval arcades and the unpretentious streets breathe history in Romans, Arabs and medieval manor and detail framed by the picturesque. Get regional crafts, indulge in the cuisine of the area and be sure to enjoy their famous wines. With a good hotel infrastructure, with many good restaurants, with warm people and beautiful monuments, Evora awaits your visit.

Évora is well maintained and really worth a visit. The sites are well looked after. The churches very beautiful and richly decorated. The city offers nice city tours which are worth the extra investment. What rich culture the Portuguese have left in this beautiful city.
Évora needs at least a day to walk thru the city and see all the sties.
Highly recommended

If you like towns like that, you'll like this one. Lovely to walk through. We make a point of visiting UNESCO world heritage sites, and this is one. Make it a part of your Portugal tour.

You need at least 4 nights here ! There is so much to see and do in Evora and in the larger area. So peaceful and gorgeous. The countryside is amazing.

Even in the rain, Evora is interesting. It would be nice if there was a bit more shelter on the side streets, but the squares have covered spaces. I think you need two full days to enjoy all that Evora has to offer. Just wandering around is delightful and there are lots of places to visit, shop, and eat. Do note the cobblestones can be an issue and there is a lot of uphill no matter where you are going.
