Évora is a charming city in southern Portugal that's steeped in history. As one of Portugal’s most beautifully preserved medieval towns, Évora is an enchanting place to delve into the past. Inside the 14th-century walls, Évora’s narrow, winding streets lead to striking architectural works: an elaborate medieval cathedral and cloisters; the cinematic columns of the Templo Romano; and a picturesque town square, once the site of some rather gruesome events.
